The Back Cover

Improve the health and productivity of your garden season after season by saving seeds from your best plants. When you harvest seeds from your garden you will:

  • Take another step toward food independence
  • Save the money you’re spending on plants and seeds
  • Enjoy a healthy garden filled with plants uniquely adapted to your own backyard
  • Be able to swap seeds with other seed savers
  • Preserve genetic diversity and regional favorites
  • Ensure a safe and varied seed selection for future generations.

To begin saving seeds, choose healthy plants with desirable traits. Is pest resistance important to you? What about tomatoes that ripen early or spinach that’s slow to bolt? Do you have pink sweet peas whose color you want to replicate next year? Select for these traits and build your best garden ever. Plant-by-plant instructions guide you through all the seed-saving techniques specific to 322 plants.

I wanted to thank you for your youtube videos. They are fantastic!!! About a week ago my oldest daughter who is 8 was home sick with strep so we watched ALL of the videos. She loved them as much as I do. This past weekend we went to a health food store and while I was checking out their herbs I overheard my 8 year old teaching my 5 year old which herbs were hard and which were soft herbs. I couldn't help but chuckle. Then my 8 yr old looked at me and said "Remember mom, what Shoshanna taught us, I am showing Emily." I then had to tell her to stop squeezing the merchandise :) but told her how proud I was of her for teaching her sister. Thanks again for all the wonderful information you provide on this site.
