silly me

Nicole and I chopped up most of the rest of the veggies we brought home from Italy. I'm trying to make a large pot of tomato sauce to can for pasta and pizza. As I chopped up my last giant bell pepper I said, "I wish I had the seeds for this, it's such a sweet pepper". Well I had the seeds. They are right there in the pepper! Silly me! So I collected these good seeds. I'll try planting some now, and save some for next year too. I also want to plant one of the garlic I bought in Italy. It's got a great flavor. If you like some heirloom vegetable like peppers, or tomatoes, melons or peas...do save the seeds. Seeds don't just come in packages at the garden center, they come in vegetables you buy at the farmers market! I'm so new to this whole garden thing it just doesn't come natural to me. This is how gardeners have done it since forever. Taste what you like and harvest the seeds .
