  • New contest......CDD B/N and fig de Parfum for prizes.

    Pair of CDD Blanca/Negra cuttings and pair of Fig De Parfum cuttings are the prizes. Same person can win both.




    Remember the game where you had to guess how many jellybeans were in a jar? Well I went up to the super greenhouse supply mega store in Ray City Georgia yesterday AKA Hershels house. This is what the car looked like on the way back. I was a bit paranoid I was going to get pulled over for hauling drugs as those square bales of coir wrapped in garbage bags do look rather suspicious.

    So......this is a two part contest. Winner of the first part has first choice of which set of cuttings they want or can chose 1 of each. Each member here gets ONE guess per day per item. So two total.

    1. So instead of jelly beans in a jar it is ...How many pounds of coir are in my Mini? I am not even sure of the answer yet as I have not weighed a block but once I choose a random block I will just multiply that by the number of blocks in the car. The blocks do differ in size a bit.


    2. In the picture of the passenger side where the suicide door is open you will see a square white bucket on the passenger side floor. The bottom of the bucket has loose screws in it to a depth of about 3", how many screws are in the bucket?



    The cuttings will be ready to cut in a month.

    Hershell you are banned from the game. Perhaps you can start a game on the name of your new puppy

    So the answer per day per member will be......

    coir XXX pounds

    Screws 12345

                        The daily clue should be to tell us whose guess was the farthest off for each

                        Without knowing the type of screw it's just a random number so I'm guessing 1000 screws.

                        How close do we have to come?
