Seed Saving

Jeff Poppen shows us a variety of seeds that are pretty simple to harvest and store. Kale, beans, peanuts and pumpkins are some that are discussed.

Gardener Extras

  1. Native to the Andean plains of Peru, Christmas Lima beans were first brought to the U.S. in the mid-19th Century.
  2. Black Coco's 5-inch long, round pods are easy to pick from 2" tall plants. They're a good snap bean, or wait a couple of weeks longer to harvest that traditional black shelling bean tucked inside.
  3. Garlic is harvested mid-May to mid-June in Tennessee, when lower leaves turn brown.
