Growing local

I have heard we are going to get rain in February :-)  so I decided to throw in a few bean seeds I saved from the last crop in the garden.

I can't find the discussion I was in when I mentioned I had a broccoli plant I had seeded from a previous crop and it was ready to be collected again ...it has an appearance in the clip.

I have over the past couple of years been saving the seed from my crops. I have bought most of my seed from Eden seeds as an open pollinated variety so I know they will produce a viable seed to collect.

Apart from a mishap where I had the plants hanging up to finish drying all in order, and a big wind came through and blew them into a big pile and was not sure what was what. 

I had to rescue each plant then clean them and label them so I could identify them, then plant a few from each collection to see what they actually were. 

This turned out to be a good thing in a way, as now whenever I collect a new batch of seed I pot up a six pack so as to see if the seed will germinate and all is good with the collection. 

I have since pulled the plant and gleaned the seed I did not get that many seeds from it but if the person who asked about it reads this I am sure I can send you some if you still wanted to try it out and see if you have any success with it at your place.
