The first step to purposeful seed saving is observation. 

Keeping track of plants and the seeds they produce will help you learn about seed saving and become a more deliberate seed saver.  Any gardener, at any level of experience, has room to learn and grow.

  • What did you plant?
  • When did you plant it?
  • What were the conditions?
  • How did it do?
  • Did any plant diseases or bug issues arise?
  • When did it go to seed?
