Greenhouse Watch - Second Attempt

The gremlins appeared to infect the last greenhouse watch update, so it had to be deleted. Don't worry, you didn't miss any earth shattering news, twas just an update on me tomatoes and chilies.

A picture says a thousand words, so here's three.

Yeah, there's a problem. You can't get inside. I have to take half the plants out to water the rest which, given the recent heat wave, has taken ages. All the seeds germinated, you see, which considering they were of pound shop origin, wasn't expected. I'm now left with 40 tomato plants (though I've found good homes for 4 of them) 15 chilies, 5 green peppers, 10 lettuces and a tub full of watercress. I'm really reluctant to throw anything away so the only other option is to plant half of it in the garden. So to any slugs / birds in my areas, free food will soon be available.

Finally, had a story put up by the kind folks at The Flash Fiction Offensive recently. If you fancy a look, click the link.

You say tom-ay-to, I say tom-ah-to eh? Maybe you can starts a homemade tomato sauce brand. Wade's Wonder Sauce. Or given your writing genre, maybe Wade's Wonder Blood?

ps story was good but kind of grim for me...I think it's an anti-drug thing...

Thanks Kim. I can never work out if it's tomato or tomatoe. Guess I ought to find out really. Like the sauce idea, Uncle Chuck's Tomato(e) Blood would be my idea.

ps the story was a bit grim. I'd been holding onto it for a year or so not knowing what to do with it.
