Yet another test. This one shows best position to plant a seed is lying flat. 6/6 up, with no leaf damage. Uniform seed was used. This result makes sense, because in nature, a flat object will most likely lie on its side. So they'd better know how to sprout from this position. FYI, The third row here is the seeds that were laid flat. Some others had leaf damage, and overall all the other rows are a bit slower. Point-down seeds like to keep the seed coat on.

Testing the boundaries of traditional pumpkin growing methods! In a very small way.
