For those of you who, like me, would rather not consume pesticides or genetically engineered foods, gardening and seed-saving are among our best options. I subscribe to several blogs relevant to the subject, and the video below came across one of them this morning.
It’s a short presentation about saving seeds and how to go about choosing the best varieties for developing strains that fit your particular climate. I’ve been saving seeds for several years now, although I’ve neglected my garden pretty badly the past couple of seasons.
The thing I enjoyed most about this video is seeing the layout of the various crops, often interplanted, and the use of natural materials at hand for things like trellising.
No matter what your level of experience is with growing your own food, or even just flowers, it’s always great to get a peak into someone else’s garden and see what they’re doing that you might like to try.
