I save a lot of my seeds from year to year. I thought I would share some links to sites that have wonderful templates that you can print out for making your own envelopes for seed saving.

Seed Envelopes from Blossomswap just click on this link and choose one of many listed.  This site offers two sizes for envelopes. I generally use the small (group of 3) for saving seeds unless they are squash seeds, then I use the larger envelope.

Here are a few more of my favorite sites:

  1. Hey thanks for the websites! It would be interesting to start saving seeds, that 's a great idea. By the way what veggies are you planting this year? All of my veggies germinated under the grow light. If only the weather would warm up so I can clean the garden outside. As you know, the snow won't stop. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Thank you for the website, I save seeds from year to year also.
    It snowed here last night and supposed to be a mix today and tomorrow, so much for spring and some plants outside.
    Shooting for summer,

  3. Priscilla, I am planting lots of heirloom tomatoes, so far I have Dr. Wyche's, German Queen, Green Zebra, San Marzano, Cherry (Rainbow Blend, Candy Bicolor, Abraham Lincoln, Mr. Underwood, Pink balls beefsteak, Zapotec Pink Ribbed and Wisconsin 55. Also lots of bell peppers in different colors, hot ones too, summer squash, cucumbers, beans and lots of herbs. I will put up a post soon with some photos and the names. Hope the sun is out today, we are seeing a little more of it today.

  4. Betsy, thank you for stopping by. I am glad you enjoyed the links. I love to save seeds when I can remember to do so. I save a lot of the lettuces I plant because that is an easy one to do as well as basil seeds, I get a lot of those too. I save seeds from Green Zebra tomatoes last year and they are growing well so far, about 4 inches high and almost ready to plant.


Thank you for taking time to visit my blog, I love hearing from you, stay as long as you like, Carla
