With the end of the gardening season near we’ve started saving some seeds from our heirloom veggies. Next year we will plant a mixture of new store bought seeds and saved seeds from our first year garden.
The pepper seeds were easy enough to save. I just kept a few of the stems with the seeds attached and allowed them to dry. The seeds are easy to remove once they’ve dried.
For the tomatoes, I allowed the seeds to dry on a plate then rinsed them to remove all the dried juices and dried them again. I’m not sure if theres an easier way to clean and dry them but this worked well enough.
The zucchini this year weren’t heirloom and were purchased as starters so we’ll start from scratch next year.
The dried seeds will be stored in small envelopes and in a larger airtight bag. They will join the left over store bought seeds that weren’t planted this year in the pantry.
