Now planting winter crops that really do a lot better germination-wise, if the seeds are soaked. Beets, carrots, etc. Lots of vague information out there on seed soaking. Do it for an hour! Do it for 8-12 hours! Do it for a full day! I'll tell you *exactly* how long you need to soak. You put the seeds in water, and most will float. Soak them until they sink. When they sink, they are saturated with water. That's what you need for great germination. Works every time.
