Just a quick trick that I remember either Aunt Annice or Grammy doing, I really can't remember which but I guess it doesn't matter! Take the seeds that you saved from last year and toss them in a bowl of water. If the sink to the bottom they have a good chance of sprouting and growing big and strong. Those that float just scoop them out and through away, they probably won't do much. This is to how to check seeds for "viability" or in terms I can understand, "If they are gonna sprout or not"! If anyone has any other tips for this please share with us!
