Re: HYB: lets talk about green

Christian  --  If chartreuse counts in the green category, I have a seedling
with strong chartreuse "eyes".  Trouble is, I haven't yet been able to
capture the green on film.  It turns mustard yellow.  I've tried again, and
will have the film developed by sometime next week, so we'll see whether
it's worth posting.  --  Griff
