Seed Saving

This is the first year that I grew enough unique flowers from seed that I am attempting to save them for next year. Not knowing much about this I simply went out to my garden to hunt for seeds. I’m surprised at how much I found!

For some flowers it was just as easy to pull the old flower head off and stick it in my envelope. For others I shook off the seeds right into the envelope. Easy!

These are Mammoth Dill seeds.
