I live in WV. We just moved to our current home last September.
We never had a big back yard before, now that we do I'm trying to get a little more self sufficient.
We just got our first chickens, and I started a compost.
I eventually plan to have a garden. My dad was REALLY into his garden. He was a chemist, and that was his hobby/passion.
He passed away in 1990.
I recently came across some envelpes of seeds that he had put up. He would hand cross polinate certain plants.
Like his tomatoes were the BEST ever. Then he would save the seeds from those plants for the next year... etc.
So these seeds are over 20 years old. What do you think the chances are that they will still germinate?
And what do you think would be the best way to do so?
Being able to grow from my dad's seeds would be... Well, I'm sure you understand. I'm not counting on them being viable, but it would be nice. :)
