<< Ann, we have fresh seed in Boise, Id. in racks, and have had for at least a
 week, maybe earlier. I'd not shop at places who have employees that lie
 like that.  Margaret L >>

But Margaret are you sure it is fresh?  I can buy last years seed.  And 
considering that the seed is in racks in an outdoor area, I have no 
confidence that the seed will germinate as well as new.  I have not been back 
in the last week or so, and it is Feb.  so their stores may have been 
replenished.  Our planting time is almost over for the cool weather plants, 
and nothing was available in Nov. when I started looking.  Usually the spring 
season seeds come in just as we need them.  It is the fall and winter 
plantings that are hard to keep up with.
