“Seed gathering is a fun gardening activity with a time-honored past. Before seed companies and nurseries made it more convenient to buy packets of seeds and flats of ready grown plants, farmers and gardeners relied on collecting and saving their own seeds for the following year’s crops. I recall my parents and grandparents collecting seeds from their flowers and vegetables, not only to be frugal but to make sure they had seeds for the varieties that they liked to grow.” ~ P. Allen Smith
