It's a neat idea, Diane, but with personal criteria so different, each member is judging apples and pumpkins. Aaron Tester will put together a stunning list of little bitty things that I have to squint to see. And Aaron Brothers will have a truck full of municipality-devouring jumbos. All, I'm sure will be spectacular buys and wonderful plants.
But if I can't grow them, should I care?
This one is going to challenge our ability to judge. A $500 list of Phal. Balden's Kaleidoscopes shouldn't win it as the least common denominator.
I'm not worrying about winning - I'm worrying about how to judge.
