I recently harvested false indigo seeds from a pod (in SE Nebraska). I read your article about how to plant them, but I'm not sure about the term "hardened seeds." If I wait until spring to plant the seeds, would they be considered fresh or hardened?

If you wait until spring to plant the seeds would be considered hardened. If the seed is sown immediately after harvesting it will sprout right away - stored seed is much slower to germinate and some kind of means to breach the hard seed coat is necessary.
