Processing seeds for the swap
Our first meetup get-together
seed swap) is coming
up on Saturday, which reminded me to process a lot of seeds that have
been sitting around on the porch for the last week or month (or
longer). It took the minisledge to bust open the summer
squash, but the output looks much better than last
year's seeds (which
dried down into slivers clearly too immature to sprout).
Meanwhile, I chose four
of the best-shaped butternuts for seed-saving --- fruits with a thick
abdomen are preferred to those with big butts. Then I shelled the
rest of the mung
beans and packed away the watermelon, green bean, and Swiss chard
seeds (all of which had been drying much longer than they needed to).
Our chicken waterer is the POOP-free solution to clean up filthy, damp coops.
