What is the shelf life of the Preparedness Vegetable Garden kit? How long can I keep it in storage?

Apparently, no one can count the years...

"Having an emergency food storage is one thing, but having enough survival garden seeds, that are properly dried and sealed to maintain a high germination rate for countless years is another thing entirely."

up to 5 years, the seeds will still germinate after that especially if kept in a cool dry place, but germination may start to decline after the five years!

What's a Utah-based wholesome foods product doing in the booze isle? I almost missed these greens supplies, as I never buy wine here. Maybe Woot needs a "Food" tab to boot?

Utah-based? Maybe a Mormon-based food catagory.

(Skou is short for Skouson. A real Mormon name!)

Short Answer:
In general we recommend changing out the canned seed every 5 to 6 years.


Long Answer:
Both storage conditions and species play an important role in long-term viability.

Species
Most of the popular vegetable seeds store well, however onions and lettuce deteriorate more quickly. Other species such as cabbage and beet seed can easily last for several years with no special care.

Storage Conditions
Always store seed sealed, in a dry place, in the dark, and at a cool temperature. The colder the better. A cool basement is good. If you have sufficient space, a fridge or freezer is even better. Yes, you can freeze the seed IF IT IS WELL DRIED AND SEALED UP.

Under ideal conditions, most of the seed in this can will last well over 5 years.

We recently tested the last of our oldest canned seeds. This can was over ten years old, stored at room temperature. We found most of the seed still good, but the beans had died.
Another recent test of an early batch - also tested at about ten years, also stored at room temperature, also tested mostly good. In this batch the beans we good but the lettuce had died.

Got the Micro Green kit. That is a good deal with all the parts already in it.
I already do sprouting with beans and seeds and always wanted to try the micro greens. I keep all my seeds and beans in my freezer.

Once I open them, I reseal them tight and put them inside a zippy bag and put them back in the freezer.
It is way to hot in my Texas apartment to keep seeds and beans otherwise.

I like these long term storage ideas for seeds but the mix packages like this are never adjusted for the different growing conditions across the country. I grow food from seed fairly regularly and it's not as simple as tossing it on the ground (unless you live in florida or n califorina), tomato and pepper seeds require a certian amount of heat, corn needs a long, pretty warm season etc. I wish they did regional packages.

Hey all. Seems there was some confusion on the tracking end.

Check your tracking via FedEx, not UPS.

You can use FedEx's “Track by Reference” feature to get tracking info using your order number. Your order number is on your order details which you can get via Stuff You Bought. Leave the Account Number blank. Enter your order number in the reference box. Next, select your country and enter your zip code. Click TRACK and voilà, you may have tracking info.

Checked on FedEx's reference search. It found my order(package), but says initiated on the 15th. No ETA or other information.

What's the deal?

I just checked it and it was picked up yesterday and is on the move.

Wine shipments (even on-wine on wine.woot) take a bit longer than shipments from our other sites. Please allow at least 2-3 weeks.

The FAQ:

How long is shipment going to take?
You should get your wine in 2-3 weeks, often sooner. We know the wait is kind of a drag. But it's still gonna taste good (maybe even better), and since we leave it to the wineries to get the wine to you, you can count on their experience to send their wine using their expert methodologies.
