So this whole gardening thing is an adventure for me. I never thought I would love the digging in the dirt, watching the plants grow, watering, and weeding. Ok so I don’t enjoy that last one . . . at all. In fact I think that will become a paid activity for my kids! Ha!
But I have come to love it. still learning not to care about the dirt under my nails, but I might get there someday . . . maybe?!?
So I garden to see things grow, encourage my kids to learn new things, save money, enjoy garden fresh fruits and veggies, and know exactly what I am feeding my family. So part of the saving money I felt is seed saving. I only attempted to save my own seeds from my tomatoes. I need to research on how to save seeds from the other items. Now I do have seeds left over from last year.
Soo I have a question for those of you who save seeds. How do you store them? How long are they good for? What kinds of seeds do you save or just buy new every year?
I have seeds left over from last year in the paper envelope that they came in.
I also tried saving my seeds from my tomatoes. That was an interesting process. Where I put tomato seeds in water shake it up, open container, let the top mold, scrap mold off, rinse seeds then allow to dry. So I put those dry seeds into an envelope and put them with the rest of the seeds.
Now my mother-in-law gifted us this seed saver container. Is this something you all use?
I am looking for the system that is best for organization and best for the seeds. I would love to hear from you all!
