    I'm impressed! It makes my random seed numbering systems seem so simple.
    Make 2019 the Year of Random Seed sowing

    All we are saying is..........Give seeds a chance.

    Ok so in my head it's going to work like this.
    Every cell has 1 to 6 seeds in it. Every cell has the same number of labels to seeds. So I know how many and which seeds.
    Every label has numbers and letters on it. The numbers obviously 1 to 175
    The letters are
    R = rocoto (of some variety)
    B= big size seeds
    M= medium sized seeds
    S= small size seeds
    T= tiny seeds
    BD= big dark seeds
    SD= small dark seeds
    Really not overly complicated to this point is it
    I'm guessing the dark seeds are just slightly over dried. Some of my cayenne seeds did that.

    Now we wait
    This is amazing Iím following this thread to see what you all end up with!! Iíd join in but I think the jump from 4 to 20 varieties this year will be enough of a challenge!
    175 wow where are you going to put them all? Thatíll be a lot of chilli powder

    Still working on that!

    But they are definitely not going in the chilli tunnel with my babies.

    From https://www.pepperworldhotshop.com/seeds/chilli-seeds/ :

    The smallest seeds are those of the wild growing chilies. Seeds of the variety capsicum rhomboideum, capsicum lanceolatum and some of the Thai chilies of the variety capsicum frutescens are so small that they rarely grow over one millimeter.

    That's very interesting and helpful.
    I've started compiling information and pictures next to the list of name of chillies that could be in the mix.
    Some of them I think we have very little chance of identifying with 100% guarantee of being right. Some are so similar.

    Going to keep it simple this year. Last year, 2 seeds per pot and had a & b's, some seeds didn't germinate, so ended up with missing numbers and b's.

    This year doing a straight 1 to Ö as they germinate. with germination date
