Seed Saving and Gardening Books
(Thanks Garden Lad!)
I did just get the infor for AHSC, but im a student and nearly broke. I am also moving to Nashville, and interested in a regional-ish conservancy. Ill have a job by next gardening season.
Ive learned species rarely cross and thats why I have selected my beans to grow out based on specie. I read somewhere that Brassicas are a bit of an exception to that rule.
I want to grow SO MANY tomatoes. im thinking of a strategy: those i have few seeds for will be 3-plant grow-outs this season. Ill use tulle bags to cover mid-season flower clusters, pollenate with a single use Q-tip, re-tulled until fruits form, then a ribbon to ID the fruit.
I tried to read Deppes "breed your own veggies" but found it entirely too confusing. Maybe I should give it another try. Im pretty decent at science, I just couldnt get in to that book. Ive read Seed Starters Handbook, and im a lot better starting from seed now, but Ive heard Seed to Seed has a lot more pure seed saving type info.
