As a run up to our 200th Mystery Seed, we are doing few new challenges as a contest. The idea of the challenges will be to introduce some real world reasons why someone might need to identify seeds.
Your friend gave you a wonderful gourmet bean soup mix. You’d like to buy more, but it is very expensive. If you could identify all the beans in the mix, you could put it together using cheaper beans from the bulk area of the grocery store. Time to make the grocery list.
Here’s another view:
For this challenge you may give commonly-used names, as long as it is likely those names would be used in the bulk section of your grocery store.
Scoring for challenge 2: 2 points for being the first person to correctly identify an ingredient, 1 point for each additional correct answer. Thus, if the first person to respond gets all 7 correct, he or she will get 14 points. If the second person to respond gets all 7 correct, he or she will get 7 points. Please use the same name for all the challenges so I can keep track of your points. Good luck!
Edit: Challenge 2 is now closed. The answers will be posted in challenge 4.
Looking for the answers to challenge 1? I’m going to wait one more week to let everyone give it a try before I reveal the answer and close the challenge.
New mystery seeds and Seed of the Week answers are posted on Tuesdays.
