I closed the poll tonight (thank you to everyone who voted!) and it was an even tie between "Intervention" and "Strange Likenesses," so... using my tie-breaking power as the person who is actually going to write the story in question, I am picking "Intervention." Sorry, "Strange Likenesses." Maybe next year. *wry*

And now to actually sign up. :)

a small green pepper plant in a terracotta pot, with a withered flower on a withered stem



The Lazarus pepper is not going to fruit after all. *sigh* As you can see, the flower stem has withered and is about to fall off rather than thicken to support a pepper. So it goes.

I will probably toss the plant out for compost later this week. (I think I will toss out the dirt and remaining narcissus stems while I'm at it, and save the bulbs for later planting.)


eighteen small peat cylinders in a black plastic container, each with a pepper sprout



Meanwhile this year's batch of pepper seedlings are doing well. Several are starting to grow their first true leaves, which are adorably tiny. :)


eleven squash seedlings in small plastic cups



The squash are very enthusiastic and I'm still not sure what to do with them. I mean, I could maybe risk planting them outside next weekend? There's probably going to be a freeze this week, but after that, who knows? (And it would save me having to decide whether or not to pinch them off. I am a terrible softy and hate pinching off baby plants, which is why I only put one seed in each cup or peat cylinder even though that's not the most efficient sprouting method.) Or I could buy some plastic storage tubs, punch drainage holes in the bottoms, and try to train the squash to grow up trellises instead of tentacling outward across the ground. Plastic storage tubs are dead cheap compared to flowerpots...

Well, I think they'll probably survive until next weekend and I can make my decision then.
