Saving seeds is something our ancestors did as a matter of course. Some of our ancestors brought seeds over on the boat from the "mother country" and this genetic diversity is still enriching heirloom catalogs. We must not let the knowledge of seed saving tehniques die! Large corporations like Burpee and Monsanto engineer their seeds to be "dead end" so that any seeds in your fruits and vegetables will produce no plants. Yuck! And Oh No! Let's save our seeds. Bring a delicious heirloom tomato or (overripe) cucumber and we will save and store the seeds for next season.
