Today I started to make the conscious decision to save the seeds from the vegetables I’m harvesting from garden. I have a small pile already of my favorite green pepper :) I am drying out an eggplant as well. Saving seeds cuts out next year’s middle man, and I’ve never tried this before.
Next year I am going to politely ask my neighbor if I can plant his fallow backyard. I doubt he’d mind free vegetables! As it is now, he mows it like two times a year. Usually when the grass gets about 2ft high .I figure that all I’d need to do is go in the back yard two times a week to inspect the plants, and I can water the backyard from our second story balcony. If I buy a second hose I can keep it up there and water his backyard in the afternoons. I think I’d grow corn & sunflowers if I get the chance to.
After raining the last few days, the cold front made this evening feel like the first day of fall. Its time to harvest and plan for next year.
