Chuck, your comment about only needing two months of chilling for <all>
seeds seems to contradict a lot of what I've read of other people's
experiences planting seeds outdoors in climates where they certainly get
more than 2 months chilling in the first winter.

Including seeds I've planted outdoors before I started burrito'ing.

Don Spoon recommends 4 months.

Joe Ghio had unintentional second year germination that included
STARRING. No idea how much chilling the first winter provides in his

Mohr did some experiments in a greenhouse in Kentucky cycling thru
repeated chilling and germination temperatures and got additional
germination after each additional cycle. I think he told me it was
published in the Bulletin - maybe in the 70s?

I'm not going to be convinced that 2 months is enough for all crosses
until someone does some controlled experiments in pots of soil using
some of the same parents that have required more chilling than that here.
