Daniel, yeah, you're back! I read your onion sprout blog. I never had any luck with onion seeds. Do you plant scallions and such?

Today I received from Seed Savers Exchange, seeds of 3 kinds of Broccoli, 2 kinds of Peas, Celery, Cauliflower, Lettuce, Tomato, Muskmelon, and Watermelon.

Daniel, what happened to your blogspot sidebar? Did you quit the site? I enjoyed reading your detailed garden exploits.

Spud, I don't think corn seeds being "treated" means anything bad. I soak the seeds 24 hours before planting which removes most of the red coating. Soaking speeds up the germination time. Your fingers will get red when you plant the seeds. Wash and you'll be fine. Hope you have a good crop!

I received some Golden Cross Bantam Hybrid (su) Corn seeds  today.  I didn't notice the word "Treated" when I ordered, but noticed in the package, it said they were treated with "Thiram, Captan or similar", and they had some red stuff on them.  

It also said to wash hands after touching.  I got them through Amazon because I couldn't find any su types at my favorite seed sites.

I don't like that, but I'll plant them anyway, and try to remember to read more carefully next time.

Anyway, it's been probably 10 years since I've planted corn in this small garden, and I'm looking forward to a taste treat this summer.

As they say, it must be the water. Crazy.

Someone claimed it is the Virgin Mary reincarnated into a hamster....

Strange.  I'd aim a camera at the hamster and record it constantly to see whats up.

Speaking of seeds.....years ago we bought an Asian hamster for my oldest son...cute little thing and cuddly. A weeks later, she had babies....7 of them. All grew up healthy and were given away. Another two weeks went by and viola! ...more babies! What the hell! There are no males around yet something is "seeding" her.

And yet, third time around she had 5 more babies.
