Grenville has graciously offered the following PRIZES – pickup ONLY. As you may have read someplace – maybe even on this blog – it’s been a BIG year at the F&P for cukes and zukes and we enjoy sharing.

1st prize = several large cukes & zukes
2nd prize = larger cukes & zukes
3rd prize = largest cukes & zukes

That’s it for the first – maybe even annual (monthly)? – Frog & PenguINN garden quiz – it was fun (at least for me).

I wouldn't have guessed any of them, but I'm not a gardener. I'm lucky to recognize a cucumber when I see it, let alone its flower! LOL

HEY, here is an idea for next time>>>>>> Maybe a matching challenge. Just match the flower to the veggie, or visa versa, or something like that. We could even add animals....

Hey Mona that's OK if you didn't guess for this fun project. If you had a garden I'm sure your veggie flower photos and veggies would be great photo models.

Christer, it figures that you would have had the most correct answers given your past and current interest in plants and veggies. Honestly, if I had not known which flower went with which veggie, my only correct answer might have been the tomato. Thanks for sharing in this fun..at least it was for me.

Phew! Good thing I didn't get to the quiz post until today. I guessed everything right except for the variety of the two squash. I might have won some of those cukes and zukes! Yikes. Well, pickup would have been a problem, and I have plenty of my own zukes. Fun quiz!

WOW Elaine, you and Christer would have to share in the prizes, except that you already have your OWN prizes to give away. Yes, it was a fun quiz to create and post. Thanks for sharing in the fun, too.
