Seed Starting Day!

Only growing one plant this year so the 1832.5 Graham 20 (F: 1938 Sperry x M: 1339 Graham) is the chosen one.

The seed was received directly from Jamie and placed in the freezer until today when it was removed for about 2 hours at room temperature, and then soaked in water for about 2 hours. After this it was placed in a moist paper towel in a sealed snack bag and into a cooler with a heat mat and thermostat set for 86F (30.5C). This was set-up ahead of time and the typical fluctuation in temperature is 84-87F so this is ideal for pumpkin seed germination.
