Q. Seed StorageI am trying desperately to find/create a seed storage system. To date I am nothing short of frustrated. However, I think I have come across a viable solution – the thing is – I am not sure that it will work, or how to make it work to it’s full advantage.
I am looking at:
But I have a few concerns.
1) This ‘system’ is made of plastic, so might condensation be an issue? I am thinking that the best place to store my seed organizer would be in the fridge, as I live in the Bootheel of Missouri where it can get pretty hot – even in an air-conditioned house. But it won’t do much good if the seeds get damp and moldy from condensation, will it?
2) I already know that I will divide my seeds into VEGETABLES, HERBS, FRUITS and FLOWERS, but should I organize them further by planting dates? Sun vs shade requirements? Soil requirements? I’m just not sure how to best approach this. With almost 125 seed varieties, I have to have a system in place before I get in over my head – which I am beginning to think I might have already done.
I hope you can give me some tips so that I don’t start or end the season by having a nervous breakdown.
I’m thanking you in advance for all your help.
