Thanks for running the contest Josh, I had a great time entering and learned a valuable lesson: it takes a lot longer to repose figs than you think it will. I think my back is still recovering... and the sunshine kept moving on me...
Next time I try something like that I think I might try doing it for an hour a day at the same time everyday so my back and the sunshine cooperate. Either than, or a few dozen less figs!
Again, it was a good time and I got a lot of inspiration from everyone's battles. Thanks to all of you to entered as well!
