At the moment I am chasing seeds, with brown bags and drying trays cluttering the house. I am always amazed at how many seeds can be obtained from one plant and the potential food that can be then grown.
So how easy or hard is seed saving? I think its like most things you need to start somewhere and then you improve!
So start this summer, collect some seed, grow some free food. If you have too much we are happy to take the excess
Remember to label at least with seed type, date, location and description (We love the imaginative descriptions)
Here are some great resources for improving your skills
