STOW: Week 2

When bringing in to store or eat dry crops (like peas, beans, or grains) put them in the fridge for a week, the freezer for another week, then, back in the fridge for a week before you let them sit on the shelf at room temperatures. Often pests such as weevils can hide in the seeds unknown to you for weeks until you see them start to do their damage by eating your whole crop. Placing them in the freezer kills any potential eggs.
