OFFER: Pledge or boost your pledge by $10 or more in this last 41/2 hours that we have left and then send me an email if you'd like a dozen Chinese artichoke, Stachys affinis, aka crosne tubers sent to you in the fall!  They have formed about a 200 square foot perennial ground cover under the bright shady area under my Chinese chestnut tree that kicks out pinkie sized tubers of great quality.....they make lovely French fries!  They are spreading out past that planting bed and into my paths so I really need to dig a bunch of them up!  (Very sorry, but I can only do this for mailing addresses within the United States)

These are tickets for the 2021 event.  If something happens and we need to cancel the event, then, we will probably allow them to be transferred.

Greg, when the time comes, I could capture the "adjustment" log for the proper time period and send you a copy.  It shows the kickstarter display names of people, but no other info - so I feel like it is pretty secure for the backers, and still gives you enough info to do what you are offering.

Today in homeschooling, my children are learning about the decimal place and counting into the thousands, watching all these kickstarter numbers go up!!

Yesterday my son wanted to hit a rock with a hammer, so I counted each thwack. He hit it 2,400 times!



He kept going after the video and made it to 2,400. He's pretty happy that his number of hits is more than the amount of people who pledged in the kickstarter. Though, with 2,127 backers and still counting, he might not win after all!

I think PMing Greg is a good idea! That way he doesn't have to publically post his email address (I did that once on here with a spare email, and I'm still getting spam--eek!)

Here's a link to Send a PM to Greg!

And, we're now at:

$ 96,420!!!

And here's handy-dandy image-link to the kickstarter

One quick clarifier....Chinese artichokes are not Jerusalem artichokes...i.e., not sunchokes.  Chinese artichokes are a low growing (about 12-18" high) ground cover that makes loads of little tubers, while sunchokes are tall clumpers that make larger tubers.  To make the common name fun even stickier....there are Chinese Jerusalem artichokes (oh my!)  I'm offering the Chinese artichoke here....the so called crosnes (pronounced crones).  If anyone is heart set on sunchokes let me know and I may be able to do that instead, but I'll need to do mainly crosnes as that's the one I have many, many more of!  Thank you all for being such great supporters of this kickstarter.  Just a little over $3k to go to reach the important next stretch goal...and only a half hour left!!
