Don't say "Good-bye" to many of your favorite garden vegetables, herbs and flowers. For a change say "Good night, I'll see you next year," and give saving seeds a try.

In addition to giving one a feeling of self-sufficiency and saving money, it may be possible to maintain a variety that is not available commercially. Some plant breeders even search out old time varieties when attempting to improve commercial plants.
