“Saving seeds…That is exactly how my Aunts, Grandmother, and Mother saved seeds. Usually in a long white envelope…sometimes a used one then taped. The name of the plant written in pencil on the front and the date and year. My Aunt saved petunias and pansy seed as well. In the fall she would plant her pansy seed in a large old washtub, cover it with cheesecloth…by spring she had the prettiest and earliest pansys in Canton. Do you know who saves all those morning glory seeds and scatters them everywhere? It must be the Morning Glory fairy that flits around early in the fall evenings.” B. Ruth
That’s how Granny saves her seeds too.
