Swiss Chard Seeds
I wintered over some chard and have some magnificent plants with myriad seeds, but I need the garden space and would like to cut these down. The plants have pretty much stopped leafing, so I'm thinking the seeds are pretty well grown, and am wondering if I have to leave the seeds to dry on the plant while it's in the ground, or if I can cut them down and dry them separately.
I have lots of experience with other types of seed saving and am a life member of SSE. I would hate to have gone to all the work to winter over these plants and grow them out if I cut them too early and lose viability.
Any advice (soon!) would be appreciated.
