I have started another plat with CA Gold, D. Orinoco, Ice Cream, Goldfinger, Manzano, and Mysore for side by side cold trials, I have these same plants out front (except for the CA Gold, which I'm putting in when I get a pup, and Mysore, which I have no room for out front) so I can do a multi field trial. I will add a 3rd plat of them next year in another location.

I'm going to add other cold hardy plants to each location as I get more pups. Stay tuned!

Ok, I just went out for a look, and took the final counts for the contest.

Dwarf Orinoco produced 5 hands. 8, 8, 8, 8, and 1 for a total of 33.




Congratulations, bigdog, you are the winner!!



Ice Cream produced 6 hands. 6, 13, 8, 8, 10, and 1 for a total of 46.



Congratulations, Sunfish, you are the winner!!

Thanks to all for a great contest! Maybe we can do it again next year!

Sunfish and Bigdog have both chosen Mysore and the prizes have been mailed out this early afternoon. They should (hopefully) arrive in time for them to plant them this weekend!

Thanks again to all who played! It was fun to host this contest, and I hope to do it again!

We're all having fun in bananaland!
