SEED SAVING

I planted soybeans this year and because the pumpkins and squash exploded, only 2 plants produced. They were completly engulfed by the vines of both. So since I only had those I did not harvest but let them grow and produce pods. when they were done I pulled the whole plant and hung it in the kitchen to dry.

Flash helped me de-pod the seeds today so they could be stored for next years planting.




This little cup of seeds represents about 4 or more packets of seed packets from just 2 plants. Cool right?
