Growing Oat Sprouts

Growing Oat Sprouts

Oats are best stored in a cool location - at home, we keep ours in a freezer, but a refrigerator works well too. If you plan on storing it for more than 6 months you should use one of these cool locations. Also, Oats are, on ocassion pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself armed - with knowledge =:-}

Happy Sprouting!
