Saving Seeds for Spring

When I planted my very first garden this spring, I never gave much thought to saving seeds. Honestly, I was just too excited about growing my own food to think about saving seeds! 😉

I saved the seeds to my organic watermelons.

As I began to harvest my fruits and vegetables, and I began eating the foods I grew, it finally dawned on me…”Why am I not saving all of these seeds?” I had been putting all of my scraps, seeds and all, in my compost bin or a big bag so I could take them to my parents’ farm animals. So, needless to say, my research began.

I saved some organic garlic seeds.

One of my favorite websites about saving seeds is The University of Minnesota. They go into great detail about saving seeds.

I saved some organic cantaloupe seeds.

So far I have saved garlic seeds (which are already back in the ground), cantaloupe seeds, watermelon seeds, and okra seeds. I totally forgot about saving my tomato seeds before I pulled my plants, but I will be saving some pepper seeds soon.

I saved some organic okra seeds, this one okra had 102 seeds in it!

I can guarantee you that I will not forget to save my seeds next spring, that’s for sure! 😉

I hope y’all enjoyed this blog, and happy gardening! 💚
