|Zinnias with pink Impatiens|
Some looked like cone flowers. In the autumn I save some of the dry flowers in order to further dry out and store the seeds. My plan worked well two weeks ago. I harvested my bounty one afternoon and we had a "hard frost" that night!
Currently, there are 3 lunch sized paper bags on my window sill that contain the seeds that are drying.
|Tear shaped Zinnia seeds attached to petals|
The seeds are tear shaped and still attached to the dried colored petals of the previously colorful flowers.
In a couple of weeks the dried seeds will be packaged in envelopes - and labelled according to height. They'll be ready to plant next spring.
Not only do I have plans for next year's gardens, today I learned how to add arrows using Photoshop! WooHoo!
Do you harvest seeds to plant the next year?
