HARVESTING SEEDS

Every planting season, I always save some plants that grow so well for seeds.
So... collect seeds from my own garden. 
Of course it's much cheaper...
As an amateur gardener, it's really interesting.
Collect and save...

Garlic chives

Kembang telang (butterfly pea)


Red lettuce

Green lettuce



Cabe keriting (red curled chilli pepper)

Passion fruit

Red amaranth

  1. I think it is important to save seeds as they are from plants that are proven to grow at your location. In our country, the seeds may have been grown in a totally different climate than our hot and humid one.

    1. I only collect and save seed from tropical plants, especially local plants. Almost imported plants have never formed fertile seeds. So I save 'cheap seeds' and buy 'expensive seeds'!

  2. Must admit that when I gather seeds I usually forget to sow them.

    1. Thanks, Joanne! Some lettuces, especially headed type, are so difficult to get flowering and produce seeds. Actually on my hot climate, lettuce will get flowering stage earlier.

    1. Salam Honey.
      Menanam famili bawang memang susah, tak suka lembab dan hujan, tanahpun mesti gembur. Saya pun sering mengalami hal yang sama.
