Sure Kathy.
You'd be assigned a buddy, to whom you'd pick a plant for that buddy to raise.
In the meantime, someone would get your name, and you'd be raising a 'baby' too.
For the next few months, progress reports are expected of the baby.
The best baby mama, will be awarded a prize.

This is the 5th year. Last year, there was even a ball!

Welcome to our new folks! Buckle your seat belts. You're in for a fun ride.

Kathy, I can feel the wind whipping down the Prairie. Beautiful shots as always. We're soaked after two nights of T-storms rolling in from the East, a very unusual pattern for us. I so wanted to plant a lot more annual seeds than I did yesterday, but the soil was way too wet and heavy.

Newt Awlens?? Jalapeno Jax, where in the tarnation is that?? Lizard town?
Hmm... educate me. What does a Hick sounds like? I'm living in what some call Redneck c'try. Is the lingo alike?

I'm guilty of being misunderstood when I talk, much more worse than Sis Kathy.
Born in Singapore, having lived in Cajun country and now here,
I'd be confusing folks with my ethnicity and lingo!!
Just yesterday I had to talk to a rep over the phone, and he advised me to email him so he'd understand my "English" better!! What an insult!!

Hey gals. Since this is my first Raise My Baby swap (although it seems to me that Jax killed her baby last year!) give me some guidelines. I read the first post, but still a bit confused. Is it to be a nice size plant (which to me is not a baby) or a just getting started plant? Are there any pics someone could show me as to what was sent out last year as a 'baby'. I have one picked out, but it may be too big. May have to downsize it.

Oooh I see some wicked mamas this year!!

I have to tell you this "Smellthis". I'm the only sane one in the group ;)

Patti, a plant that will have a good chance of winning, that's what you should send. Indoors our outdoors is fine.
Anything that's forbidden according to the rules, don't do it.
Don't be nervous Patti. You're always sending thoughful stuffs. So you'd be doing fine.

Why oh why do you have to bring that up Jalapeno Jax??? Thought you'd forgiven me and me dog sure would be crying in heaven knowing you're still hurt!
There was no damage to your baby with that pee right?
Good mama, eh?
In fact, you're responsible for it running away from home after that.. or was it the weather?

I'm sane Jaye! I found one of the bricks I was missing.

Smellthis, when you get your name you can sometimes go to that persons members page and find out little things about them. Time zone, planting zone. Sometime they have wants listed and you can get a clue of what they would like. You want to make them to be a 'good mama' so they have a chance to win, just like whoever send you something they are wanting you to win.

Please everyone make sure if you can what you send isn't something that is on the invasive list.
.
Some of us go all out for our babies. My first baby has a fur coat.

Here is Persephone with her first bloom of the year. She was my baby from last year.

You sane??? That's hard to believe!! Yep, what do you call someone who bought a mink coat for a baby too young to appreciate it. You've gone nuts, Robin!!
I'd find an old used quilt.. more homely.

I got to give you credit though. You certainly was the best mama last year. Persephone's a good baby.

We're seeing eye to eye there Jax. I agree, a hand written letter can lift one's spirits up. It means taking the time, to write, lick that stamp and walk over to the mail box!

That's a formidable baby, Poisondartfrog! Whoever's the lucky mama would have to wear a body armor!!
