as i was buying some fruit i asked for some seeds i saw in an open pumpkin....
i took them washed them and left them in a plastic bag in my bag.
this was a few days ago.
today i put my hand into my bag.....i found a nylon bag with pumpkin seeds that had sprouted against my will(joking)
can i plant them?i thought seeds need to rest a bit...or dry out and be powdered against rotting?with charcoal or sulphur

Most veggies will grow immediately from this years seed... just depends how long the season is... whether we get a crop.
Last year... I replanted my glass gem corn and got 2 generations the same year.
I also replant my beans as soon as they are mature... for another generation.

Apparently a common practice with growouts for seed companies who have access to land in Mexico... helps to create daylight neutral varieties.

There are some seeds that I've planted that wait until next year to come up... like sunflower...

Might make an interesting experiment.

It's either too early or a little late, David. But they won't hold now that they've sprouted so you might as well go for it.

The cold weather might arrive before the pumpkins are ready with a start this late though. It depends upon the variety of pumpkin, and how early your cold weather starts.
