Re: seed storage

Some vegetable seeds need to be dried to 2% moisture before freezing. I
think this varies quite a bit though. I use silica get to extract moisture
from beans and peas. Once dried and kept frozen in air tight containers some
seeds last for decades. There is an organization called The Seed Savers
Exchange dedicated to heirloom vegetable preservation. I am a lifetime
member. Unfortunately vegetable seeds are all I know about.
