Which is why I suggested a crayon "funeral." Help them understand that these crayons will never color again.

Well, by the third year I wasn't able to get anything to sprout, so as far as parsnips the internet information is pretty close to my own experience. Other plants, absolutely not. I think I still have some downstairs, although I may have thrown them all out. I'll try this fall.

It sounds like your parsnip seeds are lasting upwards of five years. According to what I've read they have a 1 year shelf life and by two years they're mostly dead. Any idea on the age limits of your parsnip seeds?
