Planting on a Budget…Harvesting seeds from your own garden

Will definitely be trying this recipe!!

Mrs. Robinson's Pantry

Gardening on a budget need not take that much extra effort, and the idea is to save money by eating your own vegetables – so it makes no sense to spend a fortune on seedlings and seeds from garden centres when you can harvest your own!

Letting a few plants go to seed isn’t a crime on your vege patch.  When they do, cut them and dry them out.


When you are ready to use them, separate the seeds from the dried stalks.

Alternatively, the seeds can keep so you can put them in little labelled envelopes like these: Image

If you are a stationery fan like I am, you can make labels and enveloped seed packets into little tokens or favours for friends too! It’s always nice to let people know you are thinking of them with a DIY gift, especially a keen gardener.
