Does anyone here grow heirloom veggies? If so, save those seeds as the season progresses, and maybe we could have a seed swap this fall. No store bought seeds, only from veggies grown by you personally. I am growing out 2 kinds of pumpkins, 2 kinds of summer squash, and 3 kinds of winter squash, plus two kinds of tomatoes and two kinds of peppers. I am also doing purple carrots, but those usually take 2 years to make seeds. Oh, and 2 kinds of melons as well. Mmhhmm. Flower seeds would also be welcome as long as you grew and collected them yourself. I might even have some Tarahumara black and blue beans, but it depends on if I can save enough v.s. eating them. If you are a keeper of heirloom veggies, stay tuned.

Mmmm, veggies. I wish I had a place to grow veggies. I don't think my window box would cut it.

actually, depending on how large you window box is, ther might be several kinds you can grow. You can probably do cherry tomaotes for sure, and maybe some peppers and scallions, and herbs.

It isn't very big. I have a baby Christmas tree in there, and I would have some herbs, someone (eyes boyfriend) let them die while I was out of town. I'm going to get some more of them soon though. But it'll only hold about 3 things.

It is amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. Even growing sprouts is a kind of gardening.

I usually harvest my purple hyacinth beans seeds every year and I will be harvesting my mutant rudbekia flower seeds (in hopes of getting more of a mutant plant next year Wink)
I might be up for a fall seed swap.  A too bad it isn't spring yet swap - but just in time for those of us that plant our seeds in the middle of winter for spring planting...

This sounds like fun.  Right now I am growing some heirloom tomatoes.  They're really quite unique the leaves look more like potatoe leaves than tomato leaves.  The tomatoes are huge.  I call them Joe's Giants - named after the gentleman that gave them to me I have no idea what they are truly called but they are great.  Can you send seeds across the border?  I live in Canada.
