They've been good on the vine for a couple of months, which should
be enough for them to be ripe.  I just want to dry them so I can 
start them soon.

I've got enough seed where I'd like to start and then move on to the
next batch.

Mike:  nix on the dehydrator. If you bring them in, put them in sugar water
on the window sill. At least I would. Best to find a way to let them
mature.   glen
