I'm really blown away by the size and scale of this. On top of the generous prizes, she has put a huge amount of time into preparing all of this. So, thank you, Chelle!!

I'm happy Y'all like it!

We had fun packaging all those seeds! It was a family affair; Dad supplied the copies for the packets, Son helped cut and fold, and I added the seeds and the labels. Hurray!

The idea of first place winner choosing second and third was a Whitinger collaboration, and I agree; it's a great one!

It was enjoyable! In the depths of winter when everything here is frozen and buried, packaging and sorting seeds is my relaxation *gardening*. Big Grin

You know, actually, I "get" that Chelle. It makes perfect sense.

I got my tickets! You guys better buy quite a few 'cause I sure did. You have to buy enough to beat me out. Hilarious!

Thumbs up , Mary.


All of this seed talk has me champing at the bit to begin my winter sowing!

I really have to restrain myself, I usually start plenty early for our conditions. Whistling
