Chop Chop!

In a cutting edge experiment to see if the power of suggestion might encourage my tomato plants to get cracking, I saved some tin cans to plant them in. (I only need 4 plants so it wasn't hard to eat the requisite amount of Spag Bol.)

I did wonder afterwards if it might have slightly sinister undertones though. A bit like being raised in a coffin.

Scientists among you will not be surprised to learn that it made no difference either way, and therefore I have not applied for the Nobel Prize for Biological Research.

They are now outside in baskets where I suspect I will need to spend most of my waking, non working hours, watering the darn things.
