Needing her hands, she absentmindedly stuffed them in her pants pocket. She forgot them until she bent over to pull a weed, but by then she had tomato sauce in the works! Garden Corner By Glenda Castleberry (filling in for Myra Weikal) I'm sure that everyone's garden is well established by now; we all will be kept busy harvesting and canning for the rest of the summer. It may seem a line early to be thinking about seeds for the next year, but if you are interested in seed saving, now is the time to start planning. If you haven't tried saving seeds before, you will find it a worthwhile endeavor. I have saved flower and vegetable seed for several years. I don't think I have bought zinnia and marigold seed for several years. To grow and save seed yourself you will need to start with know what you may come up with. Start out with heirloom or non-hybrid seeds; they will grow up to look just like Mom and Dad. There are several sources where you can buy heirloom or non-hybrid seed, even Wal-Mart or Bi-Mart has them at times. There are many companies that are on line, and you can order them over the Internet. A few years ago I ordered from a company that packaged seed according to where you lived; mine was called the mountain mix. However, you are not given a choice Basically, it is a very simple procedure to save seed. When you have your non-hybrid going good, pick out the best fruit of each variety, including several different plants of the same species that you want to save, and tie a ribbon around them, or mark it some way so you will know that they are the best ones. Let them ripen on the vine and mature; it will mean you may have a zucchini the size of a blimp in your garden. Corn is a little tricky, it has to be left on the stock until it is dried. Not only that, you need cobs from several different plants to assure it will continue to have strong genes. Tomatoes are another one that is different to process. Once your tomatoes have ripened you must squeeze the seeds into a clean shallow dish, set it on top of your fridge and let it mold over. Once it has molded you carefully rinse the seed and let them dry and then store. Most seed you can just collect them as the fowers dry, if you want to keep your lettuce from taking over your driveway, tie a bag over the flower head once the flowers have started to dry, but I kind non:hybrid seed. Hybrids of seed going that way, and usually will not grow a plant we have some that we really a n that looks like the parent aren't interested in, but plant, and you will never there was a huge variety. www.cottonwood iv Big City Selection All At One Location Missing since: 09/14/2004 Age at Disappearance: 11 Yrs.

I store my seed in envelopes marked with the name, and if flowers, the color. It might be a good idea to put the date that you dried them. Seeds can keep for several years, I have some that are still good, and they are at least five years old. To check to see if they are still viable you place several on a wet paper towel, role ft up and put it in a warm place keeping it moist. Check in about ten days, and if over fifty percent are sprouted, you are good to go. You can keep the seed in a cool dark closet, which is what I do, or you can place them in freezer bags and freeze them, just be sure you open the freezer bag so the condensation does not dampen the seed when you take them out to thaw. Seed will keep a very long time when frozen. Seed saving can be a great hobby, and the best investment you can make in case things get tougher with the economy.
