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