MEMBERSHIP SEED PACKS 2019

I will post in the thread when your seeds arrive.

I'll be putting together the GVGO membership packs again this year. I hope everyone enjoyed them and put them to good use this past season. The weigh off season is over so that means the seed harvesting season has begun. This is a great way to get your seeds out there to other growers. Last year I think I did up about 240 packs so if you want every pack to have your seed please send in 240-250 (It really helps if you include a note with how many packs are included). We really need more of the "other" giants like Long Gourds, Tomatoes, Watermelon, Field Pumpkin, Green Squash, Bushel Gourd as well as the "other other" giants like carrots, beets, cabbage, rutabaga, cucumber, and others. So once you get the seeds harvested, dried properly, packaged and labelled (individually is preferred but bulk seeds will be packaged as time permits) please send them to me;

I plan on putting together the packages the same way as the last couple years, and it went as follows; Everyone that sent in seeds was given pretty much a complete set of everything that was sent in (except their own). After that, I started filling the seed packs weekly as I got an update on memberships paid. So the earlier you paid your membership, the better selection you got in your seed pack. That being said, last year the selection was great so everyone got a great pack but if you are paying your membership in March instead of January there may be a few seeds that we have run out of by then. Also, if you have any special requests (certain vegetables you are looking for or certain vegetables you will never grow) just send along a note or email me pumpkin1088 at outlook dot com.

Received a great assortment of seeds from Dave McCallum including some great squash genetics and seeds from one of the longest pumpkins I've seen. Look for these in your membership packs. Hopefully now that Canada Post is not on strike any longer the seeds will start rolling in. If you haven't got yours ready yet please send them soon. The sooner your membership is paid and the sooner I receive the seeds the better your selection will be in your own membership pack.

Nice cross. Still time to get them out to John, as the seed packs don't usually start being mailed out until early Feb. Thanks for supporting the GVGO.
