38 year old seeds popped!

Not Ace related, but as lovers of landrace genetics I thought this would be a good place to share my excitement.


So my mom has been living with an old man from the northern mendocino / southern humboldt hills for the past 5-6 years helping him out, he is 93 years old and has been growing out there since the mid 70's, a while back he told me that he had kept a lot of his seeds from over the years in his horse stable, they were all very well kept in jars with oxygen absorbers and old magazine paper in an old military ammunition box.


Well!! I came across a ton of seeds, ranging from 1977 to 1991
and I was told to take whatever I cared to.


I just put some seeds in a paper towel yesterday afternoon that were labeled [Afghan x Cambodian 1980] and already 7 out of 28 have tails sticking out!!! 1980!!!! almost 40 years, I cant believe it and I am so excited!



The tap roots on some of them are a weird color, but they popped out nonetheless which says to me "THEYRE ALIVEEEEEEEE"


other seeds I found were often not labled as a strain unfortunately, but I did come across some Mazar i Sharif seeds by the hundreds from 78-81.

What a find!!! You are one lucky dude. I'm a N.Cali native and probably grew up in his back yard. I grew up in the hills on the north end of Mendocino county throughout the 70' and 80's. Good stuff, good memories.
Peace

May be a little late for them to get big outdoors, but I'm excited either way! Wish them luck!

Wow awesome find. That could be the first post of a huge thread. Like epic levels. Very best of luck to you on this endeavor! I don't pray, but this bowl is for you seeds who are older than me.

Dang I had a ton of genetics prolly 5k worth that were around 10yrs old and I couldn't get anything to germ. I didn't have them properly stored though. I'll make dang sure to store seeds correctly from now on, even if I plan to stop growing again I'll make sure I have the genetics hopefully. This is amazing my friend I've never heard many stories of this kind !!!!
