[Gardening] Watching Pampas Grass Grow


Anticipation "grows" as the final preparations for this year's
tournament are diligently completed.

Sonoma will be 2016's generous host for + V O T A N O L O G O S ~ T O U R N U A +
(all are welcome to participate and/or pledge, but the winnings will be distributed on Sonoma)

Coverage of the event will occur *here*
(and among other channels)

Regular participant progress updates will be posted here by myself and others,
as will announcements of prize pledges from *you* the spectators ! ! !.

Who will be this year's winner of the Trophy ?
(and thus dubbed Champion of the Campions)

Who will win this year's first raffle
(held on May Day 2016)
for a Raised Garden Bed ?

What wondrous prizes will our determined botanists be competing for this year ?

If you wish your pledges to remain anonymous, inform me of such,
I shall assist as needed.

hoping to encourage "deciduous" pursuits among the "populas",
Breaking the 4th wall, one post at a time ~
