Separating Seeds–September 18, 2013

74° today with plenty of sun.  Anna brought in a stevia plant for the garden and kids loved tasting the leaves! Then we finished the seed saving process by straining the soaked seeds (Sungold, Red Cherry, Roma, and Plum tomato seeds) from last week through a fine sieve, then separating them in bowls.

We picked the last of the lemon cucumbers which had a few worms in them and pulled the rest of the cucumber plants and put them in the compost. The bean plants still look healthy with lots of lima beans to harvest. We watered, weeded and played tag.

The tomato seeds are drying in the library and we can use them for next year’s garden!
