As summer is turning to fall, our gardens are beginning to spill out their seeds in great abundance, insuring us its future generation. Do you save your seeds?
Collecting seeds from your own garden is a great way to preserve your prized beauties and save them for the spring garden or pass them along to family and friends. I find that trading seeds is a fun way to share my own plants and try out someone else's favorites. There are so many seed exchanges available to gardeners, but here are two of my favorite sites for seed swapping and seed giving.
This is the craigslist of seeds. You can post seeds you have to offer or request a particular rare variety.
"What do you do with seeds from vegetables and fruits after you're done eating? Most eaters, who aren't gardeners, probably don't give those seeds a second thought. Seeds for Food is an organization that collects seeds from the dinner table and distributes them among Saharan refugees and teaches them how to grow some of their own food."
I am a seed saver and trader....if you have any questions about collecting, cleaning and/or drying, storing, saving seeds of particular plants, or want to trade.....just let me know.
