I'm afraid it would be necessary for me to assume a pen name if I sent a submission for this call out. You know, something along the lines of Kandie Kane. (Sounds like a stripper's name, doesn't it?)

Oh, dear. Pat is so correct. Imagine if I wrote about somebody's magic bean growing into a beanstalk, and the story was accepted, and then a student Googled my name. I am afraid that would result in an unpleasant outcome.

Besides, the name "Buck Naked" has already been taken by a fellow who looks like Humpty Dumpty with a melon head.

So, they want to say that gardening can be dirty?

I already have a pen name picked out...maybe this is the story where it gets its debut.

Well, this is interesting news. It might be fun to give this a try. :) I guess they are going to try and give 50 Shades of Grey a run for their money.

LOL. That's all I've got.

Sexy gardening? Now there's a challenge. Which I probably won't take up.

I too thought of beanstalks. And hoes. Guess the next step is to think up another porn-pen-name. I had another wordplay, but it made me blush fifty shades of red.
