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 have recently started learning about herbs and their many uses. I live in an area rich with wild plants and herbs, and it amazes me to think they were here under my nose all this time and I thought they were just weeds! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. You truly have a great ministry in what you are doing. ~Lisa
