Pic #3 shows the seed soaking part. This year the seeds are being treated/soaked in a antibacterial soap and daconil fungicide. I also bumped my soak time to 4 hours. Thoughts behind the Dawn soap addition are, well, to kill the bacteria since that and fungus are what you race against with old seeds, and it also seems to help permeate the seed coat to get things moving faster. Again, this is an experiment here, so we shall see.
