    Watermelon Jenny F1 Hybrid Seed Giveaway

    I am giving away two watermelon seed packets. They are called "Jenny F1 Hybrid" watermelon seeds. Each packet contains approximately 40 seeds, and the seeds expire in 2012.

    Some great info I have found about these seeds is here:
    http://www.parkseed.com/gardening/PD/5769/

    I actually bought these seeds at a different website (that also has some good info):
    http://www.gourmetseed.com/product/W...F1_Hybrid.html

    Here is a photo of one of the seed packets:


    Rules for giveaway:

    I will pay for shipping of the seeds, but you must live in the Contiguous United States. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contiguous_United_States)

    You must enter the giveaway by 2-25-2011 at 11:59:59 PM PST. Everyone will have a good 4 weeks to enter.

    To enter the giveaway, you must reply in this thread the truthful answer to these 3 questions:

    1. What will you do with the seeds if you win?
    2. What fruits/vegetables have you successfully grown?
    3. What plants (of any kind) have you successfully grown from seed?

    I will determine your worthiness based on your answers. Please keep your answers to about 1-2 complete sentences long. If you have any questions of your own, you may post them in this thread or you may PM me. I might post any questions asked via PM in this thread.

    Everyone that I deem worthy will have an equal chance to win these seeds. I will use a random number generator to choose the two winners on 2-26-2011. The winners will be announced in this thread that same day.
    Thank you for participating in my first giveaway.

    eou812, the drawing will take place on 2-26-2011. I don't want anyone to supply me with their address unless they win, and that won't be determined for another 4 weeks. I apologize for not making that clear.

    1. I will plant the seeds indoors under lights and transfer outside once the danger of frost has passed. If there are any extras, I'll be more than happy to give away what I don't need.

    2. Cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, snow peas, corn, green beans, and carrots.

    3. Drosera, tomatoes, Dionaea, Sarracenia, sunflowers, Lithops, and most of the vegetables listed up there. Hopefully some gourds for instruments and birdhouses.

    There's nothing more gratifying than growing your own food.

    Hey everyone. Just a reminder, the drawing will be this Saturday. This super-small-seeded watermelon variety is way easier to grow than "seedless" watermelon. Answer the three questions before Saturday to have a chance to win. This giveaway is not first come, first served. Full set of rules can be found in the first post.

    1. I will be germinating the entirety of the seeds inside in an appropriate warm, humid container. I will keep an number of germinated plants for myself here at school, and give the rest away to friends and family when it is time to transplant.

    2. I've successfully grown several types of beans, cucumbers, lettuces varieties, tomatoes, carrots, etc.
    I am currently germinating many types of peppers for the first time!

    3. I've grown Dews and Sarrs from seed, as well as the garden plants listed above, as well as many types of flowers for my parents garden at home!

    Thanks for this opportunity,
    Kyle
