I was wondering that the other day, but I think the Whitinger family might have been a tad busy having a baby.... Hilarious!

Yes, I was planning on hosting my own raffle in July but life got in the way. I need to start thinking about something for August.

Does anybody have any specific requests that they'd like to see for upcoming raffles? I'd love to hear your ideas!

Paul- You aren't the first one to ask about using acorns for a new vehicle!! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing As soon as the car lots start accepting acorns as legal tender, we'll talk Green Grin!

Hetty- great idea!

Also, if anyone wants to sponsor a raffle, let us know so we can start planning it.

How about a raffle for acorns? Acorns used to buy tickets for a big acorn award.

Or a great gardening tool --- nice quality.

Gift certificates are always nice. They could be to places that sell plants online or seeds online.

If I remember correctly, it takes 500,000 acorns for a car Whistling but I think that was 2011. Might be 800,000 this year Green Grin!

Oh, and uh, there's that car lot thing about accepting acorns for currency Sticking tongue out

Rolling on the floor laughing
You know, I am adding images from other nurseries and if I add multiple images in the same entry, I only get the one acorn for the first image so I don't have as many as you all think I have! Not even for a Yugo. Hilarious!

Don't you get one for a bloom, one for whole plant, one for roots, one for stems, one for leaves, etc? I thought it was one acorn for "type" of picture, not one per plant. I know if I add more than one bloom, I only get an acorn for the first one, which is fine. I still like to see pictures taken in different years, or different stages of maturity.

Love the idea of a gift certificate that could be used for plants or garden tools.
Also love the idea of something from Trish's store.
