Saving more seeds

The cup of veggie tops and seeds, by the sink, was getting kind of full and when I saw the canteloup that needed to be cut up...I knew it was time to start getting busy.

Washed, dried, put in a paper towel, and then outside to really dryout.
Tomato seeds on a paper towel, dried out, then then straight into the garden...yes, still on the paper towel.
These are those little pepper tops.  The seeds will be washed, dried, and put in a paper towel to dry outside, vacuum sealed and planted next year.


  1. Saving seeds from your own garden is a great thing to do. You might look into getting the book, "Seed to Seed" by Suzanne Ashworth. There are some fruits/vegetables that will cross and the resulting seeds won't be what you expect. Peppers, tomatoes and beans are no problem, but melons and cucumbers will cross. Eating corn and pop corn will also cross, making both inedible. Saving seeds is easy and fun. Good post!

  2. Thank you for the suggestion. I am obviously a newbie at this...thank you for your insight (as usual) :).

  3. Great information! So many people don't understand about saving seeds, and it's time they did. Thanks for sharing. Great blog, BTW.
