Collecting Seeds for Next Season

DSC_0001Some of the snap peas got away from me and then were too “far gone” to harvest. So the decision was made to let them mature and dry completely so that seeds could be collected for next year’s planting. This is how our fore-parents farmed. As long as your plants are organic, heirloom and/or GMO free the seeds of any plant can be harvested when the fruit or vegetable is fully ripe. Take care not to save seeds from any plant, fruit or vegetable that looks diseased. DSC_0005
After collecting the seeds store them in a labeled (type of seed and year harvested) paper envelope or bag. Store in a dry area and away from frost over the winter months.DSC_0006
