We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
I bought a few really cool gourds (maybe some of them are white pumpkins?) for decoration this fall and it just ocurred to me to save the seeds and plant some myself next spring. When are the seeds mature enough to save? Should the seeds from the gourds I just bought be viable?
Wait until the gourds dry completely before cutting into them for the seeds...it may turn out that they are viable...but not TRUE...if it grew as a Bottle Gourd...it may have been crossed at some time with another type gourd...we get some interesting crosses that way though...
After you get the seeds out...try the wet paper towel and seeds on a window to see if they grow. Jo
