I have many different tomato varieties but only have room to plant about 30 each season.I reserve enough room for my main crop,probably's & new tries so this leaves very little space.I have many small quantity seed also quiet a few older(up to 5 years) also some "never plant again"seeds.How do YOU handle this? On the small quantities do you plant some to replinish or do you just let them ride?On the older seeds I have no qualms about using seeds up to 5 yrars old.A few years back I planted some 8 year olds that Dr.C M gave out and got an acceptable germination rate.The older seed coat seems to be harder to shed than the younger ones is about the only problem I see.When trading do you tell what year they were harvested?Is it OK to trade 3 year old seeds & not tell the age? Do you plant new different varieties each year?If so how many of each?
do you just give away or destroy the "never plant again"ones?
