I really like seed savers. They have always done good for me and if I'm patient and wait a bit they have great sales with free shipping close to the season start.

http://www.bulbsdire...-Plants-Gardens

 

 

I almost forgot to mention.

 

I went to the above website and checked out their perennial garden section

and WOW.. did I get a hell of a deal.

 

i bought nearly every garden selection they had to offer for the

perennial flowers.

 

It was around $130 with free shipping for me to get roughly 400 plants and bulbs

with around 75 different varieties.

 

Blooming range is entire growing season.

 

 

I should be getting sometime in May, I think i told them to send um out near the middle/end of May.

 

 

Pretty stoked for the added flower garden.

With this many new plants, Im guessing that the new flower garden is going to be around

30'x50'

 

 

Need them flowers for them bees :)

any pumpkin really.... I like the bigger ones, bigger seeds.

pie pumpkins have nice seeds though.

 

yellow squash produces a lot of seeds too.

 

Acorn squash has some nice medium sized plump seeds.

 

 

Best way to collect seeds from these fruits is to just start up some plants,

pick the first few fruits, then leave the rest to go to seed.

I find that the first fruits produced, usually dont produce good seeds with high

germ rates, its usually the later fruit that produce the best seeds for eating, and

the best seeds for eating also happen to be the best seeds for planting.

(talk about a run on sentence lol)

 

:P

@PsyBearknot. Have you tasted those red okra? I was told the normal green ones taste better. Which is better?

If not, I got you. That picture is not mine but that's exactly what mine look like. I'm growing my usual 3-4 strains of morning glory/moonflower too. 3 sets of catnip/catmint (surprise), vanilla marigolds. King stroph, blah blah blah..

I love moon flowers!

@jesson
I actually am not a fan of okra and I have not tasted the red.

Now my moms and my mother in law love okra and the dude I got the gourd seeds from was all in a bunch about these red okras. So I figured I'd try em.
