Why save seeds from your garden?
- Seeds that you save are free, you don't have to buy seeds or seedlings
- You start to develop strains that are adapted to your climate and conditions
- You have something to swap with other seed-savers - more free seeds
- You remain in control of your food supply, not relying on seed companies

Most of my garden is now self-seeded or grown from saved seeds, that means I don't have to pay for seeds or seedlings, and everything sprouts when its ready, I don't have to figure out the right time to plant. I didn't take a class or read a book to learn how to save seeds, I just let the flowers develop into seeds and watched nature do the work for me. Its not difficult, it just takes time.
Do you save seeds? Any tips to share?
