Hi, my name is Max and I grow pumpkins and gourds and save their seeds. I also sell pumpkins at the Morrison farmers market. In the next couple of days I will be posting pictures about my germination test I am doing that proves the viability of seeds. The test will give the seeds a rating from 10 to 100 percent. If my seeds get 60 percent or more I can use them. If they are 50 percent or less they are not good to use. You can follow me on instagram at farmer.max.
