Does Grass seed go bad if it is in a open bag for a year or so ? i heard people say yes and no ? just wondering what the pros here have to say about it ?

Should be fine if it was stored in a dry location (Dry as in low humidity)

I remember reading a National geographic article where they found some ancient seed in a clay vessel, it was like 6,000 years old, and they got the stuff to germinate.

Thats amazing!

Nothing to do with this thread, but very interesting nonetheless.

"The oldest honey I have seen is in the Agricultural museum at Dokki in Egypt, where two honey pots from New Kingdom tombs (c. 1400BC) still have their contents in them"

Honey does not spoil if kept in the right conditions.
