To Market, To Market
I recently read an article online (by Robert L. Williams) about how you actually can get "free" seeds when you grocery shop. Here are a few examples:
* Buy packaged beans (pinto, limas, black-eyed peas, kidney, etc) - not canned or frozen. Plant just as you would any seeds.
* Get watermelon or cantalope - and use the seeds in your garden.
* Potatoes - they sprout in the bag anyway, so they will definitely grow when planted!
* Dry the seeds of peppers, squash or cucumbers when you are preparing them for meals - add them to the garden!
Admittedly, my kids will vouch that I do not have a green thumb, but it still sounds like fun...let me know if you try (or have tried) this and it works!
