Grr.. Inhumane conditions
I went to my local farm and garden shop last night.. I usually don't shop there, but they were having a veg plant sale too good to miss. It was dreadful in their green house, on account of all the poorly treated sickly plants they had on offer. Tomatoes sickly yellow with brown spots flopping out of their tiny pots already trying to fruit. Broccoli in flower! Six inches of stem leggy squash. Etc. I found my three plants for the special offer, as a few things were in good condition.. but on the whole, it was dreadful. How dare they try to sell such terribly treated plants. Some new garden is going to come along and purchase something.. then feel a terrible failure when the results are likely death or poor/no production. And on top of it all.. I felt terrible for the poor little plants. Shame there isn't a vegetative form of RSPCA one could report them to.
