Well, the seeds are really good for you... And you can use the stems to make linen (from what I understand).

I have seed, but haven't tried it yet. It's hopefully going to make the garden or in buckets this year...

LOL! I know you have seeds. It's your spreadsheet that got me curious about growing flax. rofl I think I'll delete it from the list and keep buying my flax seed at the health food store. I just thought maybe I was missing some hidden benefit to growing my own. thinking

LOL! If nothing else, you can use those store-bought ones to grow your own too...

If you grow for seeds, do you store them in a glass jar in the frig or freezer? http://www.motherearthliving.com/Gardening/Flax-Growing-and-Processing?pageid=1#PageContent1
