You’ve made it through the season, almost, and you actually had a decent harvest. You weren’t sure exactly how this whole gardening venture would work out for you, but you realize you enjoyed it. Sure, you had your failures and frustrations, as all of us do, but you’re already catching yourself dreaming of next season.
I know, the thought of saving your own seed seems a bit overwhelming. That’s only for the hardcore homesteaders, right?
What if I told you that even the hobby gardener could easily save seed from one season to the next, with minimal effort and know-how?
It’s true. If I could do it as a beginning gardener, so can you. All you need to know is a few simple basics. You don’t even have to save all of your seeds. Just begin with a few crops and that’s a few seeds and transplants you don’t have to purchase next year, right?
