the gardening journals of ladies who love a good compost pile and relish wielding their gardening tools in the back 40 (feet, that is)
LOL! My first thought was: "How can we get the kids involved?" I always thought the worst process was the drying part - just waiting and waiting... But I was much younger then.
Meant to say that is a great site!Okay... so I'm rereading this site, and it looks to me like you are supposed to let the stuff fully ripen on the plant before harvesting for seed - even to the point of having to pull the item up whole from the ground. So, we may need to keep that in mind when harvesting our crops - maybe save one (or however many we need) plant of each kind for seed harvesting.
Yeah--I thought the same thing. Maybe let the last round just hang on the vine/plant? I know you're supposed to keep picking/harvesting to keep the plant producing, so this should be an end of summer thing--when we're too tired to harvest!
