Seed Saving Underway

The saving of seeds is underway.
We have Empress Bush Beans drying and approaching time for shelling.
Three kinds of lettuce seed are dried and put up.
Two peppers, Golden Marconi and Red Ruffled Pimiento, are drying. Waiting on Jalapeno, Tabasco, and Cali Wonder.
Let one Basil go to flower and will harvest that when ready.
Picked up a Moom & Stars watermelon at market last week and have a plateful of seeds drying, along with a plateful of Costata Romanesco zuke seeds.
We have the containers labeled to begin with the tomatoes....it is a stinky process. We'll be saving Old German, White Tomasil, Pantano Romanesco, Thessalonika, Brandywine, White Currant, Mexican Midget, Cherry Roma and Chadwick Cherry.
Various flower seeds are being saved all along.
I'm a bit pissed that I planted three varieties of cukes in close proximity to one another and can't guarantee any pure seed, though I am tempted to save some anyway and see what a Suyo, Japanese Climbing, or Japanese Long cross of some sort would yield next year. All three are wonderful cukes.
I need more land! Guess I'll have to cut some deals with son ;-) , who is getting into gardening BigTime. He is making all sorts of plans for next year and for starting plants in his basement.
BTW....all seed saving is done in accordance with "Seed to Seed".

I'd like to make it down for that, but it seems something is always in the way. About a five-hour drive is all. Maybe another time, when cooler hopefully.
That end of the state is even worse for heat and humidity than my end, it seems and IMO. We've been on down to Branson a few times, years ago, with the kids and the heat/humidity was brutal. Nearly as bad as the traffic!
Younger son lived in Springfield for a couple years and we visited once in August. Spent most of the time under AC with cold beer.
Have a great weekend and try and remain......cool.
Care and get in some Hot Licks ;-) Charlie
