黃色夏南瓜收種了Get seeds from my yellow zucchini

黃色夏南瓜收種了Get seeds from my yellow zucchini
2013-09-04 044 (Medium)
This zucchini was growing since July 20…so it was time to pick and get seeds for next year growing use. This plant had more than 20 zucchini so far and still counting. As you can see, there are around 200 seeds from this zucchini. I don’t have space for so many plus I am not going to grow so many. Any one want to trade/exchange your different produce seeds for my yellow zucchini seeds?

這條黃色夏南瓜從7月20日長到現在,是時候切下取種子留著明年種了. 目前收了超過20條瓜而且還在長. 你可以看到這條約取出200顆的成熟種子. 沒有足夠的地加上也不想種太多棵. 有人想要交換我家的夏南瓜種子嗎?
