Most people already know this information, but I thought I'd share it here just in case some forget the possibility of jump-starting their garden. It still all depends on the weather in your particular area of the country, tho.

*The only seeds I've ever bothered to *scar* are watermelon seeds because they are so large. I might try it this year with a couple varieties of squash I want to try. I saved the squash seeds from last year when we bought some produce from a Hutterite vendor who had set up his booth at the fairgrounds during the Central States Fair. They were called carnival squash and I'd never seen them before and haven't seem them since, so I'm glad I saved the seeds. I also saved some delicata squash seeds because his were purple! I've only ever seen the regular yellow and green mixture on the delicata rinds around this part of the country. I talked to him briefly about it and he said he got the seeds from a relative who lived in AZ so he didn't think they'd even grow here, but they did. That's how we find out things - by experimentation, right?

Happy soaking!
