    I'm not so sure about trusting weather forecasts to rodents, but I guess they get it about as right as the humans with their instruments do 😁. Anyway, I agree, winter has barely got started around these parts.

    Great offer, and can't wait to see what it is!
    General Beauregard Lee from the Atlanta area claims a 94% accuracy rate, but has had some monumental misses... He predicts more winter this year. Not that we have really started one...

    And Ms. G didn't see hers. I guess it's unanimous!

    Members will now have three things to watch later today -- the Super Bowl Game, the Figbid Squares Auction grid, and now the forum for the launch of your giveaway.

    Punxsutawney Philip update:


    I will be opening my GroundHog’s Day Giveaway (with instructions + predictions) tomorrow, which is Sunday, February 2nd at 5ish pm PST (he’ll have the whole day to get a good look at his shadow, )


    I am asking for people who got some cuttings last time from me to allow others a first chance to get some freebies too. If there are any leftovers by Tuesday midnight, it’s then open grabs for all. First come-first served with preference to newbies/first-timers. Sound fair? Mmhmm---

    Being in PA, I only ever went to celebrate Groundhog Day once when I was in school....

    one of the biggest drunk-fests’ I was ever a part of, if you can believe it.

    I think they’ve cracked down on that since then, but wow...never again.

    It does very well in our zone, hope everyone that wants it will get it....but I only have enough for about 8 people (3 cuttings each)...We'll just see how it goes!

    This book is interesting but probably not useful for the warm South....written for the U.K.

    Bry , I see you're in the same zone so I assume this fig does well in 8b?? Hopefully I'll be one of the lucky eight!
