as you know, last week i reordered the bloom clue sets. some people immediately voiced their displeasure with this change, but i'm interested in hearing from everybody. that's why i'm running a poll with this week's rows garden. read on to find out how to vote.
i'm really excited about this week's variety puzzle: a vowelless crossword by andy kravis with some hot, hot fill. links after the jump.
two little announcements about today's puzzle: first, one of my test solvers pointed out that in the clue list, it would make more sense to list medium blooms before light blooms, since the top blooms in the grid are medium. i agreed, so i've made the change, starting now.
sam donaldson is back with another variety puzzle! links after the jump.
there's a very timely reference in one of the clues in this week's puzzle. if you end up solving it on a day that's not today, i guess take note of the date at the top of the puzzle.
the seed for week's rows garden was inspired by ... last week's rows garden. i love it when that happens. (spoilers for last week's puzzle after the jump.)
this week, i'm pleased to present a kaidoku puzzle by alex boisvert. actually, it's two kaidoku puzzles by alex boisvert. plus a contest!
three of my test-solvers told me this one was really hard. i eased up on just a couple of clues, and then another said, "i think this was my fastest solve yet!" so... who knows? links after the jump.
