Harpy & Julianne's Tomato War
Last summer, Harpy & Julianne were fussing over cats and roses. This year, the two senior gardeners are having a tomato war. Harpy has a new secret to growing big tomatoes and he won’t share it with Julianne. She is sure he’s still mad over her putting salt in his prize rose bed the year before, but she keeps plying him with homemade lemon cake, hoping to soften him up before canning season. Little does he know Julianne’s friend, Joe, is about to spill the tomatoes—er—beans. Harpy and Julianne’s War of the Roses, the first gardening “war”, was published in Free Pecan Pie and Other Chick Stories.
