Saving Seeds

{seed pods}

This summer I told my grandma I loved the double-petaled orange wildflowers growing in her yard (I think they are calendula but I'm not positive). When the flowers dried out she saved some pods for me. I followed the instructions here to save them and hopefully I can plant them next year.

I'm sure I could have just bought the seeds somewhere, but it seems so cool to have starts and seeds from other gardens. I have wild violets growing by our front steps that are also from my grandma's yard and our raspberry patch came from some raspberry starts a cute guy brought to me on our second date (he's now my husband).

I also think it would be fun to make seed tape.

How fun to have something from your grandma's garden. Whenever you see them growing you'll think of her. You have a lovely blog.
