Description: In order to raise money for a motor boat ride, Nairn and Muriel decide to sell the vegetables they have growing in their own small allotments, at a local garden sale. However, their plants are still too young and small, so instead, they pull up the ripe vegetables in an adjacent garden and replace them with their own wee plants. At the sale, they soon earn enough money to buy sweets and pay for the boat trip. So everything is going very well, until on their way home, they stop off to have their fortune told (using the remainder of the money). To their horror, they discover that the man who owns the garden they stole from is quite upset! Nairn and Muriel quickly run away, in shame, before they get caught!
