Foodsaver Vacuum Sealing Questions
I know that there has been some discussion on this board about using a foodsaver vacuum sealer to store seeds. I had a few additional questions.
1) I'm interested in very long term storage, and I heard that you can freeze seeds to keep them viable for many years. Is there anything wrong with sealing seeds in a vacuum sealed bag and tossing the bag into the freezer? How long do you think they would last?
2) I know that humidity control is as important and temperature control, but is letting the seeds get too dry a big problem, esp for extremely long term storage? I have been thinking about sealing the seeds with a pack of silica desiccant, but would this take away too much moisture?
Any help is appreciated!
