There is a small market from a local church here, they only started so I so not think there will be many visitors. BUT it is adjacent to our main street, there are lots of people walking up and down inclusive tourists. They said that I could put a sign up on their front lawn to entice people to get in to my stall. I need ideas how to make (not buy) a fast, pretty and cheap sign. I don't think that I will make a lot of money there as they are only starting but it has a lot of potential, as our local nursery closed down. I thought of an old bed sheet, but I guess there are better ideas.

That is actually a good idea, paper glued on plastic (or hardyplank). I could use my ten year old daughter she is very much into drawing (but does not care for spelling). On the computer would look more professional, but less exciting.
You've not said how often you're set up there, so I'm thinking 1-2 days weekly, a few hours; therefore a portable sign.
Maybe you can get one of those two-panel folding signs like realtors use, to which you could glue your sign(s); if you're doing that, think decoupage; no reason not to mix computer-generated print with custom artwork ( by some doubtless-to-be-famous artist ), pressed flowers, leaves, road-Frisbees, whatever is flat enough to glue on that suits your fancy and business model.

in the interests of child welfare, I suggest the paper - if you must use your daughter,which undoubtedly will attract considerable attention from passersby, afix her to the backing board with comfortable bindings - gaffer tape or glue can be difficult to remove from hair and clothing.. T

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange

wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type

wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
