Plum Seeds

These are the wild plum seeds I opened 2 months ago and placed into the fridge in a moist paper towel, sealed in a plastic ziplock sandwich bag. That was July 8th. So germination is about 3 1/2 months. One looks rotted. The other 2 are slightly moldy but growing. This was one week ago.
Here they are today. I planted them in seed starting soil. No problem from the mold. Seems like wrong time of year to be sprouting. Will grow in window.

Thanks again! There should be an update on these seedlings soon. They have done well during the winter.

As for how it's done, I don't know! This is really the diary of what I'm doing on an ongoing basis. I keep the camera in my pocket so I don't have to remember the details. It helps me keep track.
