Container Count / Zone Wars 2011-2012 !! Offical Count (1)
Its nearly time to start the official Winter Sowing Container Count (affectionatly known as Zone Wars).
The count will run from Dec 22, 2011 - May 1, 2012
To participate you simply post on this thread the number of containers you have wintersown. You can post daily, weekly, etc.
Each time please include your total count so far. example:
'I sowed 5 more today for a total of 25 containers'.
** Please make sure your zone is listed correctly on your member page so we can place you on the correct 'team'.
You are welcome to use any guide you wish to determine your zone, as well as your own experience.
If you need help finding your zone, this may help:
If you're on the border of 2 zones (such as 7b/8a) you need to decide which team to join. You can post 'Zone 7, I sowed 5 more today for a total of 25 containers'. Or it may be easier to revise your profile and put 7b for example from now until after May 1. Then revise your profile after May 1 and put it back to 7b/8a.
How To Count Containers:
Each container, no matter the size, counts as one. However, if you feel your container is worth more than one, just use your judgment. Say, for example, you have one flat bin full of twenty cups with four different seeds. You can count it as 1, 4, or 20. The same for a lasagna pan you may plant several different types of seed in. Whatever you feel is right. We wont be peeking over your garden gate to count your containers ;)
Chatting, support, suggestions and friendly rivalry is encouraged.
