Post  Josh 8/13/2011, 10:55 pm

The date has been set, it's all going down on Saturday August 20th, 2011, right here on the SFG Forum!

It's been an ongoing competition between Josh and boffer as to who will grow the longest carrot from a giant 2x4 variety, grown in Mel's Mix in special SFG's to allow for the extra long length of the giant carrots.

Mark your calenders, you DON'T want to miss this SFG Giant carrot event! Josh and boffer will be posting the size and picture of their carrot. If you haven't been following the smackdown trash talk all summer, you can catch up on backstory here.

Tell us who you think will have the longest carrot. Will it be Josh the young Jr. Master Gardener, or will it be boffer, the most ignorant fifth year gardener on the forum?

It seems guys are always compairing the size of their carrots. My two gardening neighbors (both guys) were on about the size of their cucumbers this summer. What is it with men and the size of their veggies? LONGEST CARROT TIME! 889526



Seriously though good luck to you both. I can't wait to see who wins. I would have voted for both of you if I could have.

Boffer, I love you, man, but I think this was over before it started.

Josh, you sure know how to sell an event. Don King has nothing on you right now.....except his grammar. His spoken english is top notch....lol.

Good luck, guys. This has been a pleasure to watch.

WAIT a minute...I didn't say that about boffer...(I was thinking it maybe)Boffer was going to help me with making it so everyone can vote and check over my spelling and grammar, but he changed what I said ...I originally had down that boffer was a gardener with MANY years experience. Boffer's trying to get sympathy votes I think! tongue

And another low blow about my hair??? What's under your cap Boffer? What a Face

Sorry I'm slow to get back to you Rolling Eyes I had to stop and help a friend.

josh was trying to cover his butt again when he wrote: ...I originally had down that boffer was a gardener with MANY years experience...
That's what he wrote, but it's just not the case. Only five years. My sales pitch is: "I don't have to know anything about gardening because I SFG. I stick stuff in Mel's Mix, and it grows."

We're pulling carrots Saturday, so I guess the poll should close Friday night.

Now then, down to business. You're right, Kay, I don't need to carry a comb in my pocket anymore! For those of you who are feeling a bit guilty for thinking about voting for Josh because of his "aw shucks, golly gee, aren't I cute" good looking charm that sucks you in Razz here's the cold hard facts to help with your decision making:

Growing Degree Days to date:
Josh 2943
boffer 839

I think the refference to Jeff Dunham's crew is the most accurate thing except for the actual carrot seeds in this face off. It's like Peanut & Walter in the garden. I'm not voting on this one, I'll wait on the results.

And judging from the carrot in your basket, the size of the green top is not related to the size of the carrot. So much for the big hands and feet theory. Shucks. My greens are limp and falling over so they are hard to straighten in order to measure, but some of them have to be at least 2½ feet tall.

You're ahead right now in the polling, but don't forget that I told some of my peeps to hold off voting until the last minute!

It sure was genes! That cabbage was a good looking cabbage too, notice there isn't a single bug bite on the leaves, It was perfect!

I had my mom vote for me, my dad forgot his sign in cause he's not a computer person, so I'm really surprised I have so many votes!!!! The way I look at it is, if your peeps hold off to the last minute, it gives me more time to convince them to vote for me, since you won't know how they vote anyway.. LONGEST CARROT TIME! 88662

Let me show you some of my past carrots, some are really unique, then you might want to consider voting for me....

I can tell you've been planning this for a long time, but I've got to resort to the internet for content! So Rod gave me the idea of googling 'sexy carrot pictures', but I think I better not go there. However, this British carrot advertising campaign did show up.

One spot features an attractive woman playing sexily with carrots in a spoof of an ice-cream ad.

A second spot features an "extreme impossible stunt" as a guy in a jet-propelled grocery trolley flies off the face of a cliff as he is shot at by a woman firing a heavy machine, which spits carrots.

Big question is will it make carrots sexy or cool to kids?

The campaign is for a collection of carrot farmers, according to the campaign's website Babycarrots.com.

The site said: "Our mission: To get folks to eat more carrots. Then get their friends to eat more carrots. Then get their friends' friends to eat more carrots.

"And so on and so forth, until carrots are the official favourite food of everyone, everywhere."
