Cabbages

2006-07-13 21:34

  A very hard working mother cultivated all kinds of vegetables in her garden. One day she said to her daughter: “Betty, come here a moment. Look at all these little yellow marks that are on the interior part of the leaves of the cabbages. They are eggs and from those eggs will be born very beautiful but very dangerous insects. This afternoon you must check the leaves one by one and destroy all the eggs that you find. In this way you will help us to have better, greener and bigger cabbages.”

  Betty thought that there was no particular hurry for that kind of work and in the end she forgot all about the matter.

  Her mother fell ill for a few days and could not work in her garden. However, as soon as she was well, she took her negligent child with her to the garden to see the cabbages. What a sight! Every single leaf had been eaten and all that remained were the stalks. The child, at once frightened and upset, began to cry because of her negligence. Her mother, however, said to her: “What can be done today should never be put off till tomorrow. But more important still,” she continued, “you must learn to nip the evil while it is still in the bud, otherwise it will be too late to do anything and the consequences will always be fateful.”
