I want some black currents! I need to plant so many seeds it is crazy.

Anyone else up for the challenge? Mitch is already way ahead so far.

I'm in the Caribbean, it's never cold here. Cold is deadly to me. I have to live with coconut trees.

Why "challenge"? To me, that's like orders or war or jail or mean people yelling.

I am weird.

How wonderful! Warm all the time.

Challenge...

selected info from dictionary.com. the top 2 meanings under noun and the first meaning under verb:

NOUN:

1.a call or summons to engage in any contest, as of skill, strength, etc.
2.something that by its nature or character serves as a call to battle, contest, special effort, etc.: Space exploration offers a challenge to humankind.

VERB
11.to summon to a contest of skill, strength, etc.


I guess that is why.

Currents - would it not be simple to do those in cuttings this summer? Do you know a plant??? I have about 100 cuttings going here right now - love growing things from a little branch.

I didn't do my own challenge. I had good intentions...so, this one will wait on me just a couple days. I MUST winter sow SOMETHING...or I told my DH he could throw away the containers that I was saving for winter sowing. Yikes!

I had a few bottles in the house I needed to put out. Took them out today and to my suprise, 3 of them had sprouted already. I didn't think it was a good idea to put those 3 out so I put them in the cellar under the light with the broccoli. I am excited about this project. I hope my G2 bottles are not too small.
