Whilst searching for Ideas I came across this one.

Pre-germination

It would be a great idea for testing out old seeds to see if they are
viable instead of wasting precious time and getting nothing.

Especially for seeds like parsnip that don't keep very well. You can save yourself time and money.

I may try this yet. If nothing else, it's a fun project for a Saturday in late winter.
