Saving Heirloom Seeds
With my love of vintage and antiques, it just comes natural that I am fascinated with growing and saving Heirloom Seeds that have been passed down for generations. A flower, scent or taste that has remained true for years.
I have been saving heirloom seeds for years. I purchased some tomato plants from a local farmer years ago and he gave me a little lesson on heirlooms and so it began. If you enjoy growing veggies from seed and having varieties of foods you can't buy at the grocery store, you might enjoy this hobby.
Fold the two sides of the paper towel together like a piece of bias tape. (Put a thin line of Elmer's Glue to hold it in place.) Then place dots or lines between the seeds. When it comes time to plant, just cut between the lines and you are ready to go!
I made a little envelop to gift and trade with others. Gardeners love to try new things.
