 Any differing opinions???

Dave, I wonder about seed from tropical plants being frozen.  Since they 
would not be frozen in their native habitat, would freezing harm them?  My 
guess is that it would not.  Your example of human "seed" being frozen and 
remaining viable when thawed is excellent.  Interesting thinking.  Bill 
Shear, any comments?

Judy Hunt in Louisville, KY, Zone 6, hoping you have a good supply of Bengay 
for your aching muscles!
