My lettuce went to seed. I clipped them off and filled a huge paper sack with the pods and stems. They ought to open when dried and spill their seed. I read that if they are not heirloom they will not grow next season. Honestly, I do not think I purchased any heirloom seeds this year, although now that I know, I’ll purchase them this winter for next grow season.
I read an article by a woman who said the seeds can be used in breads and other recipes, so I will investigate for winter baking. I also harvested seed pods from my poppy’s. I’m hoping they will grow, but again, they were not heirloom so I may just have to use them in muffins.
It really is nice to be able to save seeds, even if they will not grow. This is a good opportunity to teach myself how to prepare them so they dry nice and not rot. Going to be fun collecting these!!
