If we all come, can we eat supper at your house after?
Sure. Pot luck. RSVP so I'll know if I need to borrow some chairs. I'll supply muskmelon wine as an appetizer, and muskmelon vinegar for a salad... I suppose the Interlaken wine will be ready by then. As far as I am concerned as a hill-billy farmer, the freshest wine is the best wine. We can have Interlaken raisins to go along with it. I'll make sure there is plenty of propane for the grill. Bring your favorite meat if desired. I'm pretty much a wine only guy, so if you want beer then bring your own.

i don't have to do this kind of thing because people like you have done this work for me.
i attended my first seed swap this past February and i had a great time. i brought as much of my collection as i could and tried to give away as much as i could. i think i ended up giving away about 1/3 of what i brought. i would have loved to have come home with none at all. i primarily took beans, but i also had garlic, peas, squash, some various flower seeds and some other odds and ends. it was only me at my spot so i wasn't able to really roam around as much as i'd hoped for.
this year i will be going again and hoping to give away a lot more. i'm also hoping to bring another person so they can be at the table at times when i want to go check out other people's displays.
also the local library has started up a small seed library and i've donated 4 beans to that with plans of doing more. i'm so excited that someone has already adopted one of them so i will keep restocking it.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type

wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
