OK, gang, it's Fess UP Time 2017, No more hiding behind the closet door, time to come clean. You will feel so much better once you do!
Please read all of of the rules below, then calculate your status.
Here is the "How many new iris cultivars did you acquire" scale
1 to 30 = Just kid stuff
31 to 50 = A good start
51 to 75 = Slightly off balance
76 to 100 = On the Edge!
101 to 125 = Over the Edge
126 to 150 = Pretty messed up
151 to 175 = You need your head examined
176 to 200 = Bring on the paddy wagon!
200 to 300 = Men in white coats coming with strait jacket.
Over 300 =Living in La La Land
You count all of the iris cultivars that you acquired during this calendar year.
Include Irises that you receive from trades or gifts, or for postage count as well as those you buy.
Update your status with each new order sent in.
You don't need to list the names of the irises, although you may, but just the number.
NOIDs received count too.
You do not need to count irises that you are replacing that have died within the last 2 years.
You do not count irises that you already have but have ordered additional rhizomes.
You do not count seedlings that you started from seeds.
If you receive a seedling as a gift from someone that counts for the person receiving it.
You only count new CULTIVARS that you add to your collection, this is not a count of rhizomes.
Whom ever is deemed the person who ordered the highest number of rhizomes (sorry, commercial growers excluded here) will be awarded a noteworthy title, and gift of some sort yet to be determined. The deadline for this award will be Nov 30. Rhizomes received after this time will not count toward this title. Although you can post them on here for posterity sake.
May the best (or craziest) man or woman win! Crossing Fingers!
