How to ensure purchasing fresh seed for next season?
This was our first year gardening, great learning process. We didn't do much seed saving. Now I am ready to order our seed for next spring so we have it on hand.
We'll be ordering heirloom seeds for a wide variety of vegetables. Short of emailing each merchant to confirm, at this point is it safe to assume we'll get fresh seed harvested this season? Or is there still a chance of getting old seed at this point? I'm not sure if it's as important with things like corn, but I know some of the smaller seeds have short shelf lives.
