I have grown onions for years. I have always used onion sets. You know, the sets sold at the local farm store. I want to try using onion seeds. Have you raised onions from seeds? Do you save your own seeds? What variety do you raise?
My onions have been nice, but they don' t keep as long as I...
A heads-up for those in the area
Saturday April 2nd, 2016
Now I've seen posts here about Nettle, a volunteer plant with so much potential, but nothing on the seed. Last year, I was reading an article by Susun Weed (a pretty well known herbalist) and she briefly mentioned nettle seed. I was intrigued and did some more research.
My research showed that...
Because of the heat, I think my garden will be done soon. From the vegetables left, I am saving the seed. What is the easiest way to save tomato seeds? I have been scooping the seeds out, smearing them on a paper plate, allowing them to dry and then picking off the seeds on by one, its a time...

We are about half-way through our planting for this year.
One of our raised beds is in sugar beets.
We are looking at producing our own molasses and rum; and we really want to produce our own seed from them.

Anyway for me to...
Where would yall get your seeds? I know Lows and Home Depot have them and some of your grocery stores will have them but where would you go to get them for a good deal? I figured buld would be your best bet. Also what would yall plant? I was thinking several kinds of beans, tomatos...
I've only ever planted gardens with store-bought seeds and seedlings. I'd like to try "harvesting" seeds from my garden for re-use next year, but I'm not sure how it's done. I imagine I'll grab a tomato (zuke, cuke, etc) slice it open, extract the seeds, dry the seeds on some newspaper in...
I was on rareseeds.com today and saw they have small and large "homesteader" kits for both northern and southern climates. The large kit even comes in a bucket! :D: I bought a few seed packs from them this year and had more tomatoes than I knew what to do with. I'm going to give one a try...
What does heirloom quality mean?
Is there a way to get a 5-10 year storage life out of seeds? The ones I see in Walmart, lowes, etc like "Burpee" have a date of about a year on the package.
I'd like to store seeds, and have an upright freezer if that's an option. But I need info on what I'm...
The thread on the doomsday vault got me to thinking, I needed to take inventory of my seed stocks. I took my seed box out of the freezer, made a quick run through the box and put the box back in the freezer.
Last weekend I counted my fertilizer, I have about 300 pounds of assorted fertilizer...
