It would also eliminate the luck of the draw. The first riders have the same selection opportunities as the end riders.

I thought we were going to be using new seeds gathered this season?


I thought we were adding the new ones with the existing ones. That was my understanding

Yeah, split sounds good.

Would one start at the beginning and one at the end of the list, or what?


We haven't really thought that far ahead yet. It's very doable though. You can sign up for one or both trains, and we can mix up the order a bit.

Another thing that has been suggested was to arrange the order by distance, so that the leap from stop to stop will be slightly quicker.

Anywho...

Moving forward I'd like to take a poll regarding the next seed train. (There's no right or wrong answer.)

With the current load, the next seed train would inevitably need to be moved up to a medium flat rate box, and with that comes increased postage costs (something around $13 or so)

...or the content can be split and sent 2 directions at once while retaining the lower postage rate associated with the flat rate bubble mailer ($7.20).

Which would you prefer?

If you end up getting that, I can do a test if I took any from the train.


I did ask but he was more interested in telling me how much the seeds suck and how we all should be taught how to properly collect and store seeds.

If he would like to chime in, he is more than welcome to do so. I on the other hand do not appreciate being scolded over something I have no control over.

The seed train has returned, chock full.

It will be stored in a cool dry closet till we start up again in the fall. Thanks go out to everyone who participated and kept this going without any problems at all. 9bb7540d806243d8deef4b435c8e37ec.jpg

I grew more than I have room for. Is anyone local looking for reaper seedlings?

They goofed up on the scoville abbreviation. I believe it should be SHU, scoville heat units, not SCU

Is anyone else sad that the train is returning to station?  I feel like summer vacation is almost over.


I was thinking the same thing.

But on the bright side, the fall edition of the seed train is going to be rather impressive. We might have to upgrade to a medium box!

I've heard that Guinness charges $25,000 to have your record included in their book. A processing fee they call it.

I wonder what he's talking about for the "approach to guinness was not carried out correctly?" Do they really have no idea what they're doing or what?


Hard to say since Guinness does not list the rules, but I'm guessing it has to do with the stability of the strain and having the peppers tested by an outside lab that they are not affiliated with.
