An anonymous donor has enabled me to renew my offer of acorns for new posts to the new Ideas Forum! But this time, I will give 10 acorns to each of the next 8 people to post something new to the Ideas Forum! That will buy you 2 tickets in the NARR!

Remember, ideas can be very short, very long and involved, or anything inbetween! It's totally up to you. If you have something you do that is helpful to you or makes things easier for you, it will probably do the same for others.

Here's the new forum--be sure to reply to this once you've posted your new idea so that I can send you your acorns Acorn ! https://garden.org/forums/view...

Sorry, no, it's already there: The thread "DIY Plant markers" in Gardening Ideas forum

But you probably have another one that is new, that is, new to the Ideas Forum. If you do, please post it and I'll be happy to acorn you!

Welcome Lester! Welcome!

If you'll pop over to the new Ideas Forum (https://garden.org/forums/view...) and post one of your ideas, I'll toss you 10 acorns so that you can take part in the NARR!

But please check the ideas already there so that you'll post a NEW idea, and not a duplicate.

Can't wait to read your ideas!

Hi Joannakat-
I just posted an idea for a DIY deer repellant on the new ideas forum.

Here's a weird idea that my father and I worked out - it actually works with stiff-stemmed vining plants: The thread "Smoothie straws for better vine cuttings! No really!" in Gardening Ideas forum
