  1. I have three vaults of organic heirloom seeds, but work lots of overtime, so I only planted a small amount of one vault. They were bought in 2014 as a gift. I think maybe they are still fresh enough to grow. How can I sprout them with short stints of time and a planting plan for Tuscaloosa, Alabama USA?
