2021 plan #1 1938 Sperry Seeds purchased. Hopefully one of my these germinate. Last year the same seed failed. This year I'm filing down a bit. Thinking about growing 3 pumpkins . I am Still pending on my other two selection. Plus backups. Poor germination rate last year.

Today - I put all my seeds on an Excel Spreadsheet by Year, Seed, Parents, Ott , +or - Heavy - and any important factors... thinking about who gets to be germinated this year. Usually I just get them out of the fridge and gaze at each little package one at a time, and forget who I have ..... I may plant one seed that is unproven but a nice orange.
