Hi Everyone, I wasn't sure where to post this, so I thought I would try here. I collected seeds from my red pumpkin and about 8 varieties of small ornamental squash/gourds. I was recently told two things that concerned me. First, that washing them increases the chance of killing them, as it washes away some protective covering. Second, that I wouldn't recognize what grew from them, and the chances of me getting more red pumpkins and the different squash were very small, but the chances of me getting an orange/red/green splotchy thing were high. Can someone give me a reality check on this?
