One of my very favorite reasons for planting heirloom seeds in my garden is the fact I can save my seed from one year to the next. Saving your own seed is both economical and easy to do, and well … it’s also one more step towards living a simple, old-fashioned off-the-grid lifestyle.
When I first started gardening, I was amazed at how much money I put into my plants. Of course, I was buying transplants at the nursery and we all know that costs a pretty penny. Within a few years, I learned to start my own plants from seed instead and that saved me quite a chunk of change. But, it wasn’t until I discovered the art of saving my own seed from my heirloom plants that I really was able to garden for just pennies on the dollar!
Seed saving is not a difficult skill. Our ancestors knew how to do it. In fact, they had to do it! Even beginning gardeners can master the art of seed saving. Like most other good things in life, you just have to take the time to learn the process. Once you know how to save your own seed, you’ll be amazed at the money you can save by collecting your own seed each year from your harvest.
There are several methods for saving your seed, depending on the plant you want to save from. The methods will vary a little, as some plants will require a few additional steps in the seed-saving process. And right now during harvest time, it is the perfect time to learn how to save your own seed for next year’s garden.
