The seed saving season is upon us. We host some fantastic seed offers and swaps on this site. If you wish to participate quite often you will need seed to exchange. Here is how to do it.

Many times you will not need to add any water at all. If you do add water, make sure it is a very small amount or it will not work. I allow my seed to ferment for 3-5 days until all of the seeds sink to the bottom and there is a moldy formation on the top of the brew.

I'll stress the labeling part. Lable at all stages. It is nerve racking when you shuffle up a few varieties and can't remember which is which.
