    Old Hippy Seed Collection "The Jar"

    Look what I found the other day!

    Talking with an Old Hippy (Steve) that I met through a friend about a week ago, he revealed he had something worth taking a look at. I was sure what do you have?... never did I think he would pull out "The Jar" as he called it. 1000s of Bag Seeds he has been collecting since 1981. Every time he would find seeds in buds he would toss them in this jar. The other great part is these seeds have been collected from the East to West coast. He has lived all over the country so there is countless variety in this Jar. Just from looking at the seeds you can see how many different lines there is. He said he hasnt put any in there for the last 5 yrs, "buds no longer have seeds in them!" He almost sounded disappointed .

    He let me take "The Jar" to sort through them and keep a fair amount.. "Im getting far to old to make use of them all... I want someone to experience all the joy I have found from it. So f*cking TAKE IT!" I laughed and happily agreed to test some ASAP.

    I have no clue how old some of the seeds are in here... after sorting there was a small handful of black dead and rotted.. which I cleaned out for him and made my selections.. Hand picked 500. Then took a few scoops from each plate that was from a different level, it amazes me how far back in time each level / scoop may go. Very interested on what could be hiding in the large collection.

    Now the only thing I'm concerned about is germination... anyone's guess how old some of these seeds may be.
