    It's a great idea! How long can seeds go without being planted though? Are there any that couldn't survive it?

    I am more worried about the fact that companies like Monsanto are currently patent some living species. Soon we won't be able to grown regular corn but genetically modified corn made by Monsanto; corn that will have a certain longevity so that if you want to plant some more, you will have to pay....if you see what I mean
