I'm wondering how most of you save you leftover seeds. Do you leave them in the packets and just put the packets in mason jars in the frige? I was thinking about vacuum sealing my seeds (in the packets) at the end of the season and storing them in the frige over winter. Just wondering.

I've just saved my seeds in a cool dry place, no mason jar or fridge needed. I know that some companies will go through great lengths to preserve seeds that you can store as a food storage type thing, but nature has already given the seeds a pretty darn good casing so I doubt they need much help in ordinary cirmumstances.

We have a thread on saving and storing seeds. I don't know that anyone has mentioned trying to vacuum seal the seed envelopes. It seems a very good way to store the seeds as you are removing any moisture and air, then storing in the refrigerator so they are cool and dry, the opposite of what seeds need to grow (warmth and moisture).

The only question I have is that once vacuum sealed, when you open the package to remove your early start seeds (like peas, indoor seeding for tomatoes, peppers, etc) it would be harder to reseal the bag for those seeds that will not be used until later for direct seeding outdoors.
