Hiring Ad


We’re looking for an ambitious ingredient gatherer (preferably from the neighbour’s garden) for our kitchen.


  • Good at scaling rusted gates or crawling through broken fences.
  • Good at silently picking the choicest of fruits, vegetables and herbs.
  • A cute face and the ability to act innocent in case of getting caught.

If you have the required skills and are up for it, feel free to contact us.

The photo prompt has been given by Brenda Cox at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the word prompt (Ingredient) has been given by Denise Farley at the Six Sentence Stories on Girlie on the Edge.
