With vegetable garden seeds you can save your own

Mankind has been saving seeds since he started agriculture so you should save your vegetable

garden seeds also. If you want new seeds, new varieties or just something new then go out and buy them at your local garden center. If you are after something more exotic like heirloom seeds then get them off the internet. After you have been gardening for a while you should bring in the heirloom vegetable seed varieties. They are the seed varieties that our grandparents grew and have largely been forgotten because they donít fit in with large-scale market gardening. But they grow well in your backyard vegetable garden. 

When you are saving your vegetable garden seeds just remember they must be dry. 

If there is any moisture the seeds might germinate and then the seed is useless. So they must be kept dry. First lay the seeds out on newspaper on the veranda or on a strip of concrete. Be careful the birds donít get them or the wind doesnít blow them away. Then put them in envelopes. I put some in the hot water cylinder cupboard but not on the cylinder as that can get hot. And I hang some up in the garage as that way the mice donít get them. 

Seeds are valuable so keep some. 

Usually some vegetables go to seed and others you can let go to seed. Saving vegetable garden seeds is a part of vegetable gardening so get into the habit of saving some seeds. But remember where you put them and donít forget to plant them next season. When we cleaned out my motherís garage we found seeds stored everywhere. Mum was good at saving seeds she just forgot where she put them.

Check out our Vegetable Gardening page and see what you think, but now is the time to stop thinking and just throw a few seeds around the house to see what happens.
