Why We Save Seeds–September 25, 2013

A cool sunny 56° day with a special guest visitor, Irene Cooper from the Master Gardner Association of Cape Cod, speaking to us about the benefits of saving seeds:

  1. It costs less money.
  2. Preserves a favorite variety of vegetable.
  3. Grows well in sandy Cape Cod soil.

We tried a method of saving yellow jellybean tomato and French fillet bean seeds on paper towels and in baggies to see if we can plant them in the Spring.

After tasting the bolting lettuce, the kids tossed the bitter stuff into the compost and then pulled up all the sunflowers and vigorously shook the roots. We finished off with lots of water for the plants.
