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

Posted by Julia Parker-Dickerson on August 21, 2014 at 9:42am 0 Comments

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

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…
