my storage method is simple, everything is sorted first as to: herbs, veggies, flowers, trees and shrubs, and other. then is alphabetized and placed in envelopes in abc order in the box for that category. unfotunately I had a few years of total seedaholicism and the boxes ended up covering the entire double bed in the guest room. since then I have been trying to send out more than come in, and am really really trying not to buy any more. The piggy swap alone has given me enough to plant for the next few years.

sadly, I am not good at keeping strains pure, I dont seem to be able to remember what will intermix and what wont in the veggie garden, so I only offer commercial seeds, or seeds people have given me, when I trade/swap. I do way better with flower seeds and native plants as far as purity goes. I have no issue with consuming everything I grow, or sharing it, more interested in taste than purity, but just not comfortable trading seeds that might have interbred(so to speak not sure what you call it)
