Would storing seeds in air-tight jars keep them good for a few years?
Thank you Kev for the video! Helped me realize I need get organized! Going to store many in freezer also. I think Im going to also try some with a vacuum sealer with mylar. And also as the poster above suggested, metal paint cans. My sister purchased one of those time capsules with seeds. I suppose if we try many forms of storing, something is bound to last, hopefully(thinking long shelf life, many years). But I am going to start the freezing for sure. Watching your video really made me realize I have to get organized with them. I love buying them, probably to much, but not very organized. My daughter is prepping to make a bigger garden this year in our backyard. We are going to get the ladybugs this year and see how that works. I saw your video on how to take the seeds out of I believe it was zucchini and that is what we are going to do this year, try drying many ourselves.
Great idea. For long shelf life Im wondering if we could put oxygen absorbers in there?I use empty paint cans. You can buy them anywhere they sell paint.
They're like $1.50 each and unused. You can even label the outside just by writing on them.
They're airtight and totally reusable and unbreakable with no rubber seal to go bad or get damaged and they have a carying handle.
