The chances of finding out what's actually going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say, "Hang the sense of it," and keep yourself busy. I'd much rather be happy than right any day. --Slartibartfast, Hitchhiker's Guide

Thanks all of you. I'm off to have lunch with Leo, and then we'll come home and eat PIE and ice cream.
9 days left till Christmas, all havoc day reigns here! Seeds to clean, house to clean, guests coming, things to wrap, bake and put away. And then the silly seed catalogs are all arriving.
My little Pea sheller came today! Leo has to put it together and then I have lentils to play with. Boy, Atash is right, I need another lifetime right now!
All my best to each and everyone of you. Each of you who are awaiting seeds from me, be patient...I'm getting there! You'll have them by the first week in January! Except you folks across the pond, who'll have to hold your horses.
Happy, Happy Birthday to a wonderful, brilliant and generous lady. I have learned so much from reading your posts and you are the reason that I joined HG to see your Italian Landrace Diagram. And then you were generous enough to share the seeds. You could have over achieved at anything that you desired. I'm so glad that you choose promoting public domain seeds.
If you can change yourself, if you can make certain requirements of yourself that you are then able to fulfill, you have a reason for hope. Wendell Berry

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)
