My family and I moved from a duplex into our own home recently and we have a yard for a garden! I am so excited because I haven't had a garden in years.
The kids and I are going to be growing tomatoes, zuccinni, cilantro and sunflowers. For tomatoes I have chosen romas and heirloom rainbow tomatoes.
I am going to be experimenting with the upside down idea of growing tomatoes as well as the old fashioned way. Anyone think this upside down idea is actually a better idea than growing them out of the ground? I am assuming it's a good alternative to those that have no yard and no I am not buying the topsy turvey I am doing something of my own. Just to try.
The soil where the ideal spot for the garden is seems to be very sandy and less than desirable for growing so...we have been making compost to mix into the ground along with some new fresh soil that would be better suited for growing!
We aren't doing this because we have nothing to do, but because we love to cook and eat vegetables. Besides, I am kind of sad to see things like gardening and doing things in the real three dimensional world have become pretty rare. I want my kids to see for themselves how to grow things.
All of this to say that I am wondering how to save seeds for the following year. For tomatoes particularly. I know nothing about saving seeds. Any advice?
