One of my crosses decided to allow a flower stalk to fold over in the wind. It stayed green for a while, but I could tell it wouldn't be long before it dried up prematurely. I gave it until the pod began to split, which was today, then I harvested it.
It appears to have viable seeds, enough for a giveaway and for some to go into the seed bank. As such, I'd like to give away two packs of about 20 seeds each of S. (leuco x oreo) x (oreo x leuco).
Fresh, harvested 26 August, 2023.
I'll cover postage in a #10 envelope and bubble wrap taco. If you win and want them in a box, we'll discuss.
Open to all members, including international. (international goes in an envelope only)
These seeds are from my own plants, not the seed bank. Winning or participating does not affect your ability to request from the seed bank.
Winners will be the first two people who can tell me (only answer one)...
1. What is the name of the assassin in Austin Powers who wears a Fez, and must tell the truth if asked a question three times?
2. Also in Austin Powers, what offshoot of a well known charitable organization did Frau Farbissina start?
You only need to answer one to win, do not answer them both. If one gets answered correctly, then only the other remains a valid opportunity to answer and win.
Aaaaand go!

Can I pass the seeds on to Intheswamp if I'm correct?
You are correct, and yes you can. I even have his address already, so I don't have to ask him for it. Very generous of you. He'll be so surprised!
Intheswamp, don't read the previous paragraph.

Wow!!! Thank you, Shadowtski! Now just how cool is that!!! I'm still googling Austin Powers...he's definitely not Bonzo, nor long-nosed Gonzo. I think it might be this guy with a round face and frozen grin. The heat exposure is slowly dissipating...it has kinda reminded me of a century ago when us kids would spin and spin the merry-go-round on the playground at school until someone would fall off and either break an arm or bust a couple of teeth out...the rest of us would just stagger around giggling or throwing up. More research required...

Update: I planted, I think, a dozen seeds on, I think, 11/10/2023. I now have one sprout…hoping for more!!! :D We’ve had some up and down temperatures which I think may have affected germination.

I think I’m sitting in the parking lot of Hobby Lobby In Montgomery Alabama playing with my cellphone while I think I’m waiting on my wife for her to look at all the Christmas stuff, the what-nots and thingamajigs, and the ribbons.

I’m a thinking man! :mrgreen:
