Win a Seed Journal - Read On Please








More of the SEED JOURNALS - See any one that needs to go home with you??


Did I forget to mention WINNING a Seed Journal - Yep, that is how badly I want you to save seeds...

If you leave a comment under any of the SEED JOURNAL postings with your favorite seed you are saving this year and a way for me to know who you are - then you have a chance to win one of my creative SEED JOURNALS... The Contest will end October 11th at Midnight. You can enter as many times as you wish however each entry must have a new seed. Honestly folks if we do not start saving none GMO seeds we will have no food choices in a matter of years - I really want you to think about what you can do to help us maintain pure food and better health.

Does vitex seed count? It is an important plant to make tinctures for women's health.
P.S. I will share some with anyone who is interested!

Ahhh...I don't know what kind it is... A kind person from church gave me a tomato that (great?)grandmother brought from Ireland when they settled in US.

I have never saved seeds but I would like to this year. The book about it at the library is out and I am looking for instructions on the web. Hopefully I will find a good one, print it out and use it at home. We have no internet at home right now so it has slowed me down a bit.

Hi Grace,I am trying to learn how to save the seeds of and properly germinate the little pink wild brambly roses that we have living in ditches and fields here in Moscow. They are just so pretty in a wild untempered with way.

Cheers =)

ZINNIAS!!!
Good grief Grace...Little did I realize when planting, for the very first time ever, Zinnias along the white picket fence in the back yard and out front in the tree lane, that once long ago and far away in my little town that there used to be an Annual Zinnia Festival and now I know why! I had a veritable nuclear explosion of Zinnia flowers that are.... wait for it...still blooming! Every day I still see handfuls of Monarchs drifting by each individual flower... UNHEARD of here in the Great North Woods in October! The colors are muted rose, yellows, pinks and they are gorgeous. To date, I have 3 big brown grocery bags full of spent Zinnia heads resting comfortably in the coal room in our basement.

So...dear Grace I am going to be sharing Zinnia seeds come spring!

Couldn't agree with you more about the need to save seeds, and the risk of losing variety in the face of GMOs. Next year our goal is to grow only heirloom and open pollinated seeds! My favorite saved seed this year is cilantro from my aunt's garden.

Farmer Judy, if I remember correctly, I learned quite a bit about how to save seeds from the documentary "The Future of Food."

Candy Vitex Seeds sure do count - Wow I have not grown that but use it in many of my remedies. I would love to trade with you at some point.

444 Farm you are so blessed to have those tomatoes - if you can post a picture we might help identify.

Melody - Zinna's are wonderful for dyeing and they do give such life and color

Farmer Judy if you do not find a good set of instruction I can copy you off one that I give to folks.

Annika those sound lovly - let me know if I can help at all.

NGO - I appreciate all your efforts and work - It is amazing what you are doing at your farm. You are blessed to have a sunt who shares such a wonderful herb.
