I buy 2oz condiment cups with lids from AceMart restaurant supply to store my seeds in, since they are untouched by human hands until you open the package. And of course, because I'm familiar with them from the business. Think the little salsa cups with lids that you get at mexican restaurants.
I think I just had a bad year with the jalapenos this year/last year. I'll need to raise some that are immune to the black mold poison.
Black mold sounds ominous. I am glad Missouri conditions allow us to prepare sourdough. We go through spurts of Hermann fads as each generation “discovers” and experiments with it for a bit.LOL.
