How to get good plant seeds for next year Garden
Always choose the best quality plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables from which to save seeds. Look for disease resistance, healthy, great flavor and high productivity. Next year’s plants will only be as good as this year’s seed. When the seed pods have dried on the plant (flowers, beans, broccoli, lettuce…) or the plant like Tomato, cucumber, watermelons …) is fully grown and well past their edible stage when the seeds are ready to be harvested. break open the plant, pull out the seeds and put them in a clean dry container (if it has a lot of chaff, you can wash it with cold water) and put it in a warm place indoors like the kitchen or sun room or sun dry it outside. Once the seeds are thoroughly dry, it will not rot or mold in storage.
Make sure the seed is thoroughly dry, Remove as much of the chaff as possible, Store in a paper envelope, labeled with the variety and year Place the envelopes into an air tight container, such as a canning jar or storage cans Store in a cool, dark, dry place.
