During the 1998 growing season in the northern hemisphere, less than 20 Troubled Times members, a small Number but more than one per seed type, attempted to grow the seeds on the seed list. Good Germination results were reported. Problems with Cross Breeds emerged and mixed results were reported. Changes to the list were suggested.
But mixed results were reported in the end from Clipper, Gus, Kristine, Jeroen, Michel, Mike, Milly, Nancy, Roger, Shekhina, and Toni.
