Quiltbea, that is what I actually did and parked it in my Gardening Section of Word and also copied it and put it in my binder. Thanks again.

Re: Seeds = Viability and Vigor

Having an idle moment after sending 200 seeds packing, I decided to count how many leeks seeds I had left.

As I am going to do a long term viability test of these seeds, I packed five baggies with 100 seeds each = 500 seeds.

500 seeds weighed 30grams

The remaining seeds weighed  240grams therefore = 4,000 seeds.

So I have 4,500 seeds total left.

Anyone like some leek seeds?

PS In addition to these 4,500 seeds, I still have some dried leek heads that I did not finish harvesting.

A nice jester to share your seed bounty. DH doesn't like onions except hidden in soups, or I would take you up on your offer.

I like leek soup so I should plant some more of my own seeds. One can always dehydrate them and use them instead of Korr's Cream of Leek Soup.
I have no problem now in growing a surplus of veggies that I can preserve.
Wish I could preserve lettuce for salads.

I have sent leek seed to a couple here and they have arrived safely.  Today I got confirmation that an organic farmer/gardener has received his seeds as well. He is a friend to me on a Facebook BTE group. 

There is at least one member from here who will know the name of Boudhira Abdellah who farms in Morocco.
