Did you grow great peppers this year? Save your seeds!

Pepper seeds are simple to harvest and save. When the peppers ripen to the point where they begin to wrinkle, cut them open and scrape out the#seeds. Dry the seeds in a single layer of paper for a 1-2 weeks in a warm, airy location out of direct sun, and then pack them away. More tips on saving seeds: http://bit.ly/1rU2lZr

What's Growing in Your Backyard?

Teach the next generation of gardeners about what's growing in your neighborhood.  Get out and enjoy the weather as a family by doing some plant exploration! Create a backyard Herbaria and discover the plants that are growing in your neighborhood. Remember to only collect plant samples when you see six or more plants growing (and always ask before you pick!) http://bit.ly/1pCImyP…

To preserve fresh #herbs freeze them in ice cube trays. Chop leaves of your favorite herbs, pack into the trays, cover with water, and freeze. Store cubes in plastic bags in the freezer and pop them into soups this winter. More on herbs: http://bit.ly/1qVaTDy…
