Replanted Okra


Cajun Delight, seed saved from last year, was sowed on 3/17/20 but did not germinate. Eighteen days later, on 4/4, the row was tilled to re-plant on 4/5 with soaked seeds. The row was replanted with the HOSS seader.

The second planting germinated fairly well.

Research into germination problems and saved seed lead to learning to put the seeds into water and any that float will not germinate. When I soaked the 2nd batch at least half floated. I did not know about the floating rule then or would have disgarded them. Given the germination achieved perhaps the light floaters also floated to the top of the seed tray in the HOSS and did not get planted.
