Welcome back and there has been some discussion on the website as to how to store your seeds. And we will be doing a week long test or really about four or five days. This is my seed container. This is where I store lot of my seeds in. This is BBR. We have watermelon, we have pumpkin, we have zucchini squash, crookneck squash, spinach, more zucchini, congo watermelon, pickling cucumber. And what we are going to be doing—and plus, we have a bunch of these little store bought packs for like $0.10, a $1.25. We just pick these up here and there, same at Walmart or at Lowes. Just pick them up and put them on a freezer. Now, the discussion on the website is that whenever you freeze the seed, you kill it, that you should not freeze your seed. So, what I’m doing now is an experiment. These are peas. I don’t want to use peas because they’ll dissolve what I’m going to do. What we have here is some crookneck squash. I’m going to take four seeds of crookneck squash. I’m going to put them on here. What else do we have? We have some zucchini squash, four seeds of zucchini. Let’s go ahead and do these pumpkins. I’ll tell you what, I don’t want to do the pumpkins. They have been in the freezer long enough, watermelon, congo. Cantaloupe, cantaloupe, okay, I have here some cantaloupe. This cantaloupe was harvested from my store bought cantaloupe, October 15th 2006. It has been on the freezer for 10 months now. This cantaloupe was harvested from my store bought cantaloupe, June 20th 2007. So, what I’m going to do is I’m going to take this cantaloupe that had been on the freezer for 10 months. I’ll take just a couple of those seeds. I’m going to pot them on here. That’s one, two, three, four, five, six. I’m going to do six of those. What else do we have? I need something that has been frozen for a long time. Okay, here is some okra, here’s some okra seeds. These okra seeds have been in the freezer for at least a year. I bought this March, April of last year. April, May, June, July, they have been in the freezer for a year and four months. So, let’s open them up. This is what okra looks like, this is okra seed. I’ll just take them and I’ll spread them out down here. I’m just going to put them in there. Now, this is just a test. I don’t want to waste a lot of seed because I don’t want to—some of these won’t bear before winter gets here. Now, these are my other seeds that I’ve got. These are squash harvested last year. Cantaloupe harvested last year. What do we have here? This is corn. All right, this is what I was looking for. This is audacious, oh no that sounds silly, corn. These corn seeds have been frozen for two years over two and a half or really—this is 2007. I bought these seeds in March or April of 2005. So, they have been frozen for two years, about two years and four months. And I’ll take those. I’ll take these corn seeds. I’m going to put it on here. Let’s see what else I have in here. I have mustard grain. Let’s put some mustard grain on there. Now, these mustard grains are little bitty seeds, they are real small. So, I’m just going to take them and I’m just going to scatter them up on this edge because they are so fine. Think about these grains is that it does not take much if you can see them inside there. Let’s not take much. They are very, very small. This is one of my seed bags that I keep. One of my bags is ruptured. I’ve got seeds everywhere. These are bunch of peas, G90 corn. Let’s do that G90 corn—of course this has also been in the freezer for about two years and four months. So, all the corn was bought at the same time. All right there. Now, what we’re going to do is we’ll take this towel and put it over that. And we’re going to wet it. There we go and I don’t want them sitting in hot water in this so I soaked this towel, soak in water. I just want it to stay wet. When I come back, I’m going to check them tomorrow. This is Monday, today is Monday evening. I want to check the seeds tomorrow evening, Tuesday and then Wednesday and whenever I start getting sprouts. I’ll take some videos and some pictures. Thank you for your time.
