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
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
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".
