Thanks, they should be fine over the winter. I'll buy some other
varieties next year and also seed the ones I have left over this year.
I gave my extras away to a few friends and on Freecycle and there were
plenty of people who wanted some even after I ran out.
It's pretty easy to grow the seeds so my plan for next year is to grow

Freecycle. It really doesn't cost much and I have a big bag of potting
soil left over. I guess that will be good next year as well.
