The Dutch giant vegetable club is going to have a seed sale on bigpumpkins.com in January, BUT we would like to offer our seeds to GVGO members first at reduced prices (Canadian dollars instead of Euros). The proceeds go to sponsoring our giant vegetable weigh-off. We have ten packages of each of the lots. You can buy one or more of each. Price includes shipping. Payment preferably by PayPal but if absolutely necessary in Canadian cash sent to The Netherlands. No cheques or money orders. If you want to buy one or more lots, email Bradley Wursten at email@example.com. First come, first serve. The sale will end at the end of the year (or when we run out of seeds) and then move to bigpumpkins.com. Lot 1: Giant veg lots ($20) Multiple seeds of all. All varieties have grown world records.
