Gatherers and Sharers

"Even in the Shire there are some as like minding other folk's business and talking big."
Robin Smallburrow, “The Scouring of the Shire”, RotK


“There’s a few carrots and some good onions,” said Gaffer Goodchild, “and a sack of parsnips behind the hedge. I daresay your Marigold’ll find a use for ’em in her kitchen.”

“She will that,” said Daddy Brown.

Little Robin Noakes, ears flapping, trotted down the lane.

“Give her a minute,” muttered Daddy Brown, but it was half that before Asphodel Bracegirdle, cape flapping, came bustling up. “Now Gaffer,” she said, “what’s this I hear? The Rules say it’s best if we gather and share.”

“Daresay you’re right there, missus,” said the Gaffer. He hadn’t mentioned the taters in the shed.
