Seed packs are completed and most have been mailed out. I did a something a little different with the packaging. I had five goals in mind. Make it obvious if it was tampered with, breathable design to fend off moisture issues, display information with a nice picture, compact for easy storage, and be able to see the seed on all sides without opening. I feel like this solution met all criteria and is far more interesting than a white envelope. Get your hands on a couple this weekend from the Wisc Club Sale.

Both of my planted 2145's have germed. Took the second 2145 almost 11 days at 85 deg to crack the soil. I preformed a little surgery on that seed 3 days ago to help it along. 2003 Haist back up was started just a couple days ago. It should pop today or tomorrow.
