Very good. Keep me informed.

Incidentally, I recently heard that soaking seeds for 4-5 hours in very strong black tea works as well as sanding and takes a lot less effort. Haven't tried it so not too sure it works... but the source has a wonderful garden.

Hey Jim-
My friend who was looking for the chipilin was finally able to get a friend in Mexico to send some seeds. We planted some inside last week- tried a bunch of different methods to see what helped boost success (soaking in water, cold period in fridge, sanding with sand paper, regular planting, planting of soil surface). So far, the sanded ones are winning by a mile!! It is so exciting, we have a couple of very tiny, but healthy plants growing.
