As I look out the window at my own garden which is starting to look past its prime, I was reminded of the need to save seeds by an article I heard this morning on NPR. Here’s the link to the article so you can check it out yourself. http://www.kqed.org/quest/blog/2010/09/17/reporters-notes-backyard-seed-banks/
In addition, I performed a quick search to see how to store seeds and found this link http://www.howtosaveseeds.com/store.php
If any of you within the group have some very practical tips to share with the rest, then please feel free to comment on this post. As very much a beginning gardener, I am always looking for practical tips because the extent of what needs to be done in the garden feels very daunting to us newcomers.
Finally, I watched a very insightful documentary on the need the many aspects of seeds including the fact that for many farmers saving seeds is in fact illegal. The documentary is called “The Future of Food”.
Happy Seed Saving!
