  • Seed Circle Swap 1 2010-2011

    The Grapevine Heritage Seed Circle.

    The idea is

    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.......

    Circled seeds so far

          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!

                  I'd just do what [I assume] most people do and pick the veg that you like to eat or that you like the sound of....and we'll help you through the 'saving' part of it.

                    Ahh, Thanks Zaz, I'll have a good look at lunch time.

                    Also, can I have a share of some of your beans please, rattlesnake sound interesting.

                      They were sent to me in a seed swap. I'm not intending to grow them again as although the peas were very sweet, they suffered from pea moth. You are welcome to them if you pm your address. If I could be mithered to sow them earlier (or later) I would probably miss the moths but I tend to sow all mine at once.

                      If anyone else would like some Carruthers, let me know and I'll split them up.

                          I'll pull my list together after I have done the SS Spread sheet and PM's...

                          Not got as much as you and Aunty Flum have but we will see
                          Never test the depth of the water with both feet

                          The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory....

                          Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

                              I have enough of Cherokee and Yin-Yang climbing beans to send some out now. I save plenty and use them as dried beans in winter.

                              I also have quite a few Bird's egg but they are so good as shellies that I'll be growing a lot - I could still spare a few packs of 10 though, like HSL send.
