643: Nifty Nightshades.
A Chat with an Expert on Seeds.
In This Podcast:
This is the September 2021 Seed Saving Class with Bill McDorman discussing nightshades. We are so glad the deadly nightshades aren’t! Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and tomatillos. Easy to save the seeds and so many reasons to. And the good news is that these plants are self-pollinating so no worries about your plants “getting crossed up.” Everyone’s favorite vegetable, tomato, could become your favorite seed saving variety. Plant, pick, save seeds. Oh and eat the fruit. Really! At least ten times a year we have a live Seed Saving Class.
