Quote from: UnicornEmily on 2022-12-27, 02:03:20 PMMy plan is to direct sow a whole bucketload of seeds from different varieties and not pay any attention to what I put where. (Grin.) Then I'll save seeds from anything my husband or I really like. I'll keep a record of all the varieties I planted, just not what I put where, so I'll be able to figure out what the variety name is for anything I liked best and saved seeds from. But if they've crossed with another variety, I'll shrug and consider that a bonus.Half will go into a bed with minimal irrigation and deep mulch. The other half will go into a bed with zero irrigation and deep mulch, along with my tepary beans and zucchinis that are used to being dry farmed. If any of them survive that, they will SO, SO get their seeds saved and have their descendants put back into that bed next year.
