Don't know why my browser didn't want to load this video but it finally did after a few days of trying. Great looking event Ben! I don't know why terrorist bother with car bombs when they could just drop a pumpkins.  ::) Just total destruction...
I did see the GVGO banner too. It really seems odd to see all those Ontario growers and not recognize any of them. The north seems to be an island unto itself. Hopefully we can get together one of these days.

Since they don't post a cost chart for each test, I just send off the sample with filled in form. They do the test and then phone me and tell me what I owe. Test results are released after the payment clears. If you're use a credit card, it's the same day. They'll send an attachment email with the results as well as a paper copy later.

Thanks Kallen. Lots of bigger pumpkins out there. Just lucky that they had other commitments.  :laugh: BTW I've been to a lot of weigh offs but Jason is in a league of his own as far as loading and unloading with that tractor. Not only is the tractor big enough to reach over any tail gate, he can load those pumpkin loaded skids on a dime. Keene's lucky to have him. 8) Thanks

The $35 test is all you need. Courier your zip lock bag of soil on Monday, and have your results by Thursday.

I sent them an email a few weeks ago and this is the reply I got.

The cost of S1B is 14.65 + tax per sample
The cost of S1B/S7 is 35.10 + tax per sample
GVGO members get a 10% discount when they send payment in with their samples.

So I took that as you take 10% off those prices then add the tax. That's what I did.
