I have been told that pre soaking your seeds before you plant them is the best way to get results.
Mostly bigger seeds. Also they say you should file the edges of a pumpkin seed except for the point slightly so that the water can really soak in.
I didn’t know that when I set my seeds in water last night. But I’m hoping that at least just soaking them will help.
I do realize it’s early to plant seeds. But I haven’t had much luck with pumpkins. So this year I’m going to try something different. I still need to run out and get soil to plant them but I hauled out my planting trays and my seeds are soaking right now.
This morning I was wandering around the yard looking at what is normally the vegetable garden that I have good luck keeping the dogs away from but now it’s just an extra place for them to run. I can’t wait for the snow to melt.
Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love winter. But it’s almost spring now and we have certainly had our share of winter this year.
