How-to videos offering top notch farming and gardening information
After harvesting seeds, what does one do to save them for the next year? Robyn Streeter grew up on a farm and has been actively growing food and teaching others how to grow food for many years through Your Backyard Farmer. She demonstrates the several steps she takes in saving seeds, shares some do’s and don’ts for storage, and describes which plants typically do not produce good seeds for growing in an urban environment.
As you will see in the video, saving seeds is relatively easy to do, is economical, and provides an opportunity to continue growing heirloom varieties that can be further developed over time (through the selection process) to produce more desired characteristics. Some of the seeds seen in the video are lettuce, bean, calendula (flower), mustard, and tomato.
