Homegrown seedlings from homegrown seed

sweet peas
 It's not that unusual to save flower seed to set the next year - things like sweet peas or marigolds which grow easily.

broad beans

Nor to save beans and peas 

but this year, I'm taking things a little further

late last summer I gathered up seed from a whole host of veg and now it's set and growing

Brussels sprouts 

a 'winter mix' of salad leaves


even beetroot

Hopefully there'll be lots of doubly free veg in a few months time - and more seed to gather for next year
