These are now gone.





Would someone here like to try a packet of heirloom watermelon seeds? I will be happy to see them adopted by a good home. :-) See the description of the seeds here:
http://rareseeds.com/cart/products/Jubilee_Watermelon-536-66...

I was given a pack of them by the company when I ordered some Oriental Greens. Unfortunately I live in a climate area that just does not grow watermelons. They were packed for this year and I would not like to see them wasted. It is only one pack.

First come, first served. Just drop me a note.

Rick

I'll take them if you haven't gotten any takers. I live in an area were watermelon does great (but not as pretty as where you live). I also love the place you bought them from.

Sorry,

They have been taken.

I would have been happy to send them otherwise.

That's fine. I don't need them just can't turn down seeds. What's the temp there?

We have had a blast of 70 degree weather this year. Gets into the 40's lately . Normally warm weather does not happen after May. May can be a very warm month for us then turns bad usually.

Well, we are in the high 90's already. I didn't realize that May was your warm month. I was there one time in June and it was beautiful. The next time at the end of July and nearly froze to death.
Thanks

It has snowed on us or nearly so each month of the year. One time ( written up in National Geographic Magazine) Juneau never saw the sun for even one day during a summer month. When the sun finally came out, the Governor declared it a "state holiday" for all the state workers in Juneau and gave them a day off with pay so they could enjoy the sunshine.
