i guess that depends on how cold they got. i've seen wheat and corn volunteer after laying on the ground all winter, so in my experience they can tolerate some freezing. u could do a germination test on them to make sure.

A freezer is safe for long term storing of seed as long as they have been properly dried prior to storing. Allow them to return to room temperature before handling.

Thanks for the answers. I was thinking about freezing seed to kill bugs and use the seed, ground, for food (flour and cornmeal), but I also wanted to keep some to plant the next spring. Looks like that will work. :)
