What to do with my seeds for the summer ?

I'm in Sth FL and won't be seeding anything now until Oct-Nov. I have lot of seeds that claim to be good until 2011, what or how should I store them until the Fall. Iv'e heard in the refrigirator, any ideas ??
Hey there Mister,
Can you tell me what happened to the seeds iv'e sown,
can you give me a reason sir, as to why they've never grown,

I always keep mine in the freezer in the off season. Most of the seeds last four or more years with good germination rates.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.

Refrigerator or freezer, both seem to work for me. Just be sure you put them in paper bags or envelopes; plastic holds too much moisture and your seeds rot.
