Elly's observation that the Pattersons are the only people in the neighbourhood without a vegetable garden leaves us wondering why that would be.

(Original Publication Date, 3 October 1990)

Panel 1: Now that John has done playing in the leaves, we find Carol coming over offering him more zucchini from her garden. He tries to refuse but doesn't get far.

Panel 2: Since she probably thinks that she's playing politeness tag, she redoubles her efforts and says that since they have so many, they don't know what to do with them all so he might as well take some.

Panel 3: We move things to the porch so John can watch as Elly politely accepts the zucchini and thanks Carol for them.

Panel 4: When they go inside, we find them trying to deal with the mountain of zucchini people have given them. Elly says that she thinks that they're the only people on the block without a vegetable garden.

Summary: This is because they have a large, lumbering idiot dog that digs up bedding plants because he's not properly supervised. You'd swear he was one of their kids!
