THE SEED PROJECT ]Last week we were contacted by one of the members of the forum, SurvivalNut. He'd bought a can of seeds that were packed for long-term storage, off of ebay, and thought it would be a neat experiment to have people in different places try to grow some of the seeds. He contacted MMM and I and asked if we'd like to head up the project. He mailed the can of seeds to us. This is a #10 can. The can contains the following seeds: Here's the blurb about how the seeds were packed, over 30 years ago: I've already contacted some of the people on the forum whom I know are gardeners. So far we have 11 people, counting myself/husband, committed to planting some of these seeds, keeping notes, and possibly taking pictures. If there are more of you who would like to try growing some of these seeds, and you take it seriously and will be an active part of this experiment, please send me a PM. I'd like to have a list compiled and be ready to start divvying up the seed in the next week or so. The people in the south will be getting their gardens rolling soon. The catch is that you have to give me an address to send them to. No one except myself will have that address, and I promise to delete it from my computer as soon as I mail your seeds. Notes and/or pictures on this thread, or PM's to me, would be appreciated, since this is to be educational, as well as interesting, to other gardeners who'd like to learn more about long-term storage of seed and how it performs. Everyone else's input and comments are welcome too!
