Good afternoon friends.
We have one pack of carbarup gemmae from the first donation that is getting long in the tooth. When they arrived, they were all bright green, but are beginning to darken. Bottom line, they need to to be sown soon to keep as high a chance at germination as possible.
This is a giveaway, so it does not count as a request. US addresses only due to the perishable nature. I will cover postage.
This will be a rather quick one, only going three days, as my daytime temps are warm enough to get them out without too much hassle. Drawing will be Thursday, mid-day. If history is any indication, Panman may have to text me Thursday to remind me to close it.
Standard stuff.
1. Rip Van Winkle
2. Dame Van Winkle
3. NO THREE! Three is a poopy-head! Three is automatic disqualification, and you'll be sold to the circus to clean the elephant pens.

Aaaaaaaaand, go!

We found a box of carburized gems from the first donor that already had teeth. When they arrived, everything was green, but it was getting dark. It is best to plant as early as possible to maintain a high germination potential.
A gift that is not considered a gift. US addresses are used for injuries only. I am paying
It will be fast and will take only three days because the heat of the sun is very hot without any problem. The draw is on Thursday afternoon. Once the story begins, I may need to text Panman to remind him to end Thursday.
According to a slightly faulty google translate, chef is going to be paying for any injuries. :lol:

I'm not in this give away. My carbarup have all sprouted nicely and are busy forming a carpet over my 3 inch pot. Y'all are on your own.

Perhaps, but once we find a buyer for you, you'll probably change your mind quickly. An elephant poops about every two hours, producing up to 300 pounds of fertilizer per day.
Hope you're ready!

I don't think that would smell very well. You could throw some "scat" in the fire place anytime you want your guests to leave. :)

4. Huntsmanshorn I've never tried "long in the tooth" gemmae before. Should be interesting.

I am really hoping mine survive this time. I hope I didn't accidently bury some gemmae while I was misting them.
