Congratulations to all whose Acorn Acorn Acorn stash has grown through the generosity of Dave, Trish, Zuzu and Paul! This was so much fun and although I didn't get many comments posted in the last week or so its a reminder to add more plant comments when I can.

Thank You to everyone who participates in helping our database grow, whether with photo's, pertinent plant info or comments ... and Thank You to the beautiful Whitinger children who bring us smiles in these adorable videos. I can't believe how fast the two youngest boys are growing! Lovey dubby

Thanks, Paul and Zuzu and all contributors!

>> This will also improve the accuracy of the "Top 25" lists. I think the plants on those lists have to have comments to be counted among the top 25.

Hmm! Do the most popular plants get acorns of their own, with which to buy compost, mulch and water crystals?

I could imagine a plant giving an acorn to someone who posted a very accurate and helpful comment, or informative photo about that plant!

For some reason, every time I try to watch the video I get an error message, but THANKS for the acorns!! It was a fun contest and great way to increase our database information. Keep up the comments, they are really helpful.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
