    Default Seed Circle Swap 1 2010-2011

    The Grapevine Heritage Seed Circle.

    The idea is

    Then we share them out.

    Simples.

    Those in BOLD are RECEIVED and all BAGGED and READY TO GO.....

    The circle consists of:

    16 - jackspratty
    tomatillo verde
    Potimarron squash



    Where I got the idea from:
    Untitled Document

    Some simple seed saving instructions:
    How To Save Seed

    The idea is that this thread can become a place to share what we are growing, when it is coming up to harvesting, and where we are all with things.

    Also, post any queries or techniques that we have devised to keep the seed clean; ie hand pollinating squashes.

    Ok - first job.

    Post on here which open pollinated or heritage seeds you have that can be used for saving in 2010 and beyond.


    *If anyone else wants to start a circle; then by all means.......

    I don't know; if we make the distinction between what we have now to share and what we will be growing next year - then we have a good base for what perhaps is missing across the board....if you see what I mean!
