   The folks had an old chest type 'deep freeze' which ran for forty years
without any service.  I used that freezer until I moved to MS.  I think I have gone
through three fridges since, but I continue to use the top freezer area for freezing
my seeds.

   About your lack of germination this year, what was the weather 
like?  Back in '00, I had very poor germination because we had very 
little winter.  This year was the opposite because of a colder, 
prolonged winter.

  What is the temperature supposed to be in a chest type freezer and 
a household refrigerator freezer?
