Stories featured in our upcoming September 2010 issue!

If you find seeds in your pockets before doing laundry or in the cup holder of your vehicle, or you just can't resist plucking a spent flower or bulbous seed capsules on plants other than your own -- you might be a seed saver. Collecting and saving seeds is an age old way of ensuring crops and flowers for the future.

Long before the internet or seed catalogs, gardeners saved their own seed to be able to feed their families year after year, and to keep a favorite or special variety going. Just like those tasty tomatoes you remember picking in Grandpa's garden.

Saving seeds is not only economical, it's down right addictive! Once you start you may never want to stop. Soon, in the interest of preserving and generosity, you will be sharing and swapping seeds with friends, fellow gardeners, neighbors and Aunt Sally who lives two states over.
