I read the "Best places to find dry foods" thread (super info!) and Tionico mentioned something about flushing oxygen out of barrels for grain/bean storage. I'm wondering what is the timeline for just storing, say brown rice, just in a foodgrade bucket without the flushing? With the flushing? How long will home canned goods keep? Dried fruits and veggies? (In buckets, away from moths etc.) Seed storage, I can share a little info... Keep in an airtight container, with dessicant, in a cool place. Like your fridge. Germination after stroage depends on how many years it's been kept, did it stay dry, was the temp. constant, varies with the seed. Better yet, plant the seed, let the best plant go to seed, save and replant :thumbup: Thanks for sharing info!
