Seed Cultivation

calendula seedSeed saving is a front runner for one of my most favorite things about gardening and growing food. I love to let plants linger to the point where they produce seed – a complete lifecycle that is fascinating. Typically, I’m forcing fast rotations to maximize food production, however, so I seldom get to enjoy the process first hand. Someday……..when I have gobs of space and I find my very own urban garden share, I will have a seed garden. Dreamy.

Until then, I’ll forever be a groupie to the seed growers of the world. Check out this video of the well-versed Frank Morton – a seed breeder in Oregon and a fellow member of the Organic Seed Growers And Trade Association (OSGATA ).
