Frodo's A-maize-ing Garden by Dreamflower

Author: Dreamflower
Title: Frodo's A-maize-ing Garden
Rating: G
Theme: Back to Middle-earth Month 2015
Elements: This prompt from grey_wonderer: Frodo decides to plant a section of the garden himself, believing he will enjoy raising his own tomatoes, potatoes, whatever you want him to attempt to grow is fine. How well does he do? Does he get any help? Is Sam offended? Amused? Annoyed?
This can be pre-Quest or post-Quest.

Author's Notes: Well, this is what came to me when I saw the prompt. Obviously it is partially inspired by movie-verse, in which Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin collide in the middle of Farmer Maggot's cornfield. Since the word "corn" has another meaning in most of the rest of the world, I've chosen to use the word "maize" which is used elsewhere than the USA, and is not unfamiliar to most Americans, though it isn't common here. Other notes at the end of the story.
Summary: The Gaffer is not amused when Bilbo and Frodo want to grow a "furrin" food from Buckland.
