What’s in the bag? The answer …

with 2 comments

Thank you so much for all your guesses. If you saw my blog posts about my AeroGarden and the mystery plant, you may have guessed the right answer. I also gave a hint in the comments … Fannie Flagg. So if you know the title of her best known book, one of my favourites, you may have guessed correctly!



The correct answer is: green tomatoes! I have harvested about sixty tiny tomatoes from my AeroGarden, and they ripened very well in the paper bag. I have had about ten ripe tomatoes per day for the last week. All this from my mystery plant.


Fifteen people guessed what was in the bag, nine correctly. The answers were generally entertaining, so this is what I will do. On Friday at noon, at the Authors Coffee House (see below), I will draw for one copy of my book ‘within easy reach’ from those who answered correctly. Then I will draw for another copy of the book from all those who answered, correct or not. If you happen to win and already own ‘within easy reach’, it would make a great gift for someone you know.


Thanks for guessing what was in the paper bag. Lots of fun!


All my best,



On Friday at noon, Pat Post (a.k.a. Rosalie Lawrence) will be reading from her memoir “Scent from Above” at our Authors Coffee House, Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Nasonworth. Chili and rolls for lunch! Free will donation to Cat Rescue Maritimes.

  1. Jane, your blog is always entertaining. I wish I could be at the Friday reading at noon but I’ll be at work. I will definitely see you Friday night at Westminster Books.
