I started my growing season on Sunday 15APR buy washing them in 50% Ethanol for about 30 seconds each and then filing and soaking for around 18 hours. Then they went on the heater inside of my 7 day pill boxes, which I have found to be a superior method for me. Seeds: 2118 Jutras, 1701 Jutras, 1807 Holub (2), 735 Gerhardt (4), 181 Wagler (2), 108 Wagler, 283.5 Dawson (2).

The two 811 Gerhardt seeds that were sent to me in the mail got lost, along with some other valuable seeds which is disappointing but perhaps a sign that I should move on (?) So I have to choose a final seed to grow for orange and that will be either an Engel, Young or Gansert seed.
