My garden is full of goodies just waiting to ripen. But I do have a few things ready to harvest, seeds. Along with plants, many of the herbs in my garden end up going to seed. Some I don't want to, basil, and some I do, fennel, coriander, dill & chard.
Presently, my chard & dill seeds are starting to dry. The dill seeds will be used for making pickles. The chard seeds will be saved for planting future chard plants. Chard doesn't go to seed until the plant is one year old. Earlier this spring I documented my golden chard going to seed. It's a fascinating process.
Everyday in the garden is a learning experience. Growing & preserving these seeds is one way I ensure future garden adventures!
