There will be a photo contest for your best Hosta Seedlings starting tomorrow.
Entries accepted through Apr. 14, judging through Apr. 21.
Watch for it - I don't know where it will pop up (possibly above your listing of watched items?).

OK - we want to see lots of pictures, so I expanded the contest so you can enter 3 in each category, so go for it!

The end date is Apr. 21 for entering your seedling photos. there is only 1 blue entered, and none for the "best of the bunch". I wish the contest feature would just allow multiple entries and you vote for a category, but it doesn't.
You are welcome to enter the same pic in a different category. Hope everyone was able to take some new pics this weekend while outside playing around.

So I CAN still enter some? Was away last week and busy the week before that with orchestra rehearsals.

Well I need to go practice the viola; so I've got to get off the computer soon. Maybe I should just wait for the next contest.

I am not sure what time of day the contest dates take affect. If you don't see a contest to vote in, it will still be open.

The Winners of the photo contest are posted (and all of the placements are posted as well).

Here are the individual results:\
Best Blue seedling -- 1st place By BlackHawkGiboshi
http://cubits.org/Hostas/photocontest/5/7/

Best Gold seedling -- 1st place By kitgary
http://cubits.org/Hostas/photocontest/5/6/

Best Streaker seedling -- 1st place By AlwaysWeeding (actually from Jeff W, though)
http://cubits.org/Hostas/photocontest/5/5/

Most Colorful seedling -- 1st place By kitgary
http://cubits.org/Hostas/photocontest/5/8/

Best of the Bunch (no entries)

Congrats and Thanks everyone for entering photos.
I don't know if I'd use the Cubits contest feature again - everything seems so hidden from the general members. Maybe we'd need to post some of the entries on a forum and do a poll by entry number for each category instead. Will think about another way.

Yes I think so. the feature just isn't user friendly or visible enough.
