Seed to Seed

I donated this to our local Library which started a seed savers group. This book helped growers to determine the distances between plants to preserve seed purity and how to save seeds. It will be interesting to see what next year produces. I have been a gardener for many years and learned how to save seeds from my mother. I had a volunteer squash plant in my garden this spring and it turned out to have crossed between a crookneck summer squash and an acorn squash. It still makes a tasty sortof ripely crookneck for stir fry. Love those volunteers.
