There are so many way to get cheap seeds.
First, save our own seeds.
I usually keep the vegetable plants that have best performance to produce the seeds for the next season.
I think most of gardeners save their own seeds from their gardens.
Of course... it's the easiest way.
Second, select and save seeds from mature fruits or pods that we have bought from markets or groceries.
We can cook the skin, but we also have seeds to be grown in our garden.
So many vegetables are sold with their stems, such as kangkung and katu (Saorophus androgenus).
Look the katu stems..., we can plant the stem soon on the ground, and two weeks later we can find the shoots appear from the leaf axils.
We also save the spring onion or green onion stem base.
Plant it, and get the new veggies in our garden.
Save the rizhome on the humid place, and let it bear the shoots.
So... the rizhome is ready to be planted.
Third, share and exchange your own seeds with your friend.
In our community, we usually share and exchange our excess seeds.
So we have more varieties of seeds, then we have more varieties of vegetables in our garden.
What will you do to get your cheap seeds, friend ?
