Saving Seeds from Your Garden

Vegetable Seeds from the GardenSometimes I try a do it yourself project and it works. Sometimes, not so much. These are seeds I gathered from our vegetable garden last fall. Pumpkin, squash, pepper, and arugula.  Saving seeds is supposed to be simple. These seeds are ready to plant. I think.  Keep your fingers crossed for me. I’ll keep you posted.

How are your garden plans coming along? Do you save your seeds?

One thought on “Saving Seeds from Your Garden

  1. It’s amazing how you can totally miss things that are so simple. I never thought to get seeds from my vegetables! I’ve been mulling over starting an inside (still pretty cold in this coastal Alaskan town) veggie plot. Now that I know I don’t have to buy seeds, I might have a weekend project!
