on my plants. I planted these from seeds that I traded on the Garden Web, but I can't remember what those seeds even looked like. Now I'm getting ready to put my garden to bed for the winter but I want to have these nasties again next yr. Will some kind souls come forward & tell me where to look & what the seeds look like? TIA

Thanks morz8. Are those the seeds or the seed pods? Also wouldn't I have seen them by now?

Sorry, I don't check here every day...

Those are the seeds, each round is a seed, like a large pea, but with ribs :) You'll find two, three, sometimes even four at the end of a stem...if you aren't finding any, lift some foliage and look on the ground - they release while still green. There are some that are self sown around the compost pile here, if I just brush my hand over them, the seeds drop.
