Because we are interested in how we affect microbial inheritance through time, we encourage you to also send in samples from any previous years you grew them, and also samples from original seed sources - unless you sourced seeds directly from me or participating seed companies Adaptive Seeds (adaptiveseeds.com) or Carol Deppe’s Fertile Valley Seeds (http://www.caroldeppe.com/Seed%20List%202015.html) because we already have seed microbial data from those sources.
