Jason has locked 7 of your camping buddy’s up in a cabin.  To get to Jason (and kick his ass!), you have to solve this rhyme to gain access to the cabin.

Find two different answers to this letter selection rhyme.

My first is in carob and also in boast,
My second’s in costar but not found in coast.
My third is a vowel you’ll see in rattan,
My fourth is in cornmeal and lentils and bran.
My fifth is in cognac and also in grace,
My sixth is in hornet and benches and chase.
My whole is an object you’ll probably see
While strolling an orchard and viewing a tree!
_ _ _ _ _ _ and _ _ _ _ _ _

    Haha! I loved this one!
    Not anything too difficult. Just requires looking through the combinations.
    I also got, ‘A RANCH’ as an answer, which kind of works!
    Keep up the puzzles!
