Looking for an excuse to do nothing?  Let your garden go to seed. 

Check out this quick video and the International Seed Savers site for more info.  Saving seeds is easy, it’s a great way to save money and you’ll feel so darned self-reliant when your new crops appear.  Added bonus–birds will love you, too.

The book, Seed Sowing and Saving by Carole B. Turner is a terrific resource featuring seed saving advice on more than 100 vegetables, flowers and herbs.

    As keeper of a very seedy-looking garden, I thank you.
