Seed Saver

I'm a seed saver.  I've saved lots of flower seeds before but this is my first attempt at veggie seeds. 

Below, the seeds look ready to fall off, so I decided to cut some bunches off before they fell to the ground.

Parsnip seeds on a paper towel

I'm testing the viability of these seeds in a damp paper towel in a plastic bag.

This is my drying setup. I'm excited to see how it turns out. I hope to have plenty of parsnip seeds for next year.

Rustic Benches

I decided to go for a rustic theme in the kitchen garden by making a few rustic garden benches. These are built from local alder which I peeled and let dry for a week. 

Pro tip: Be sure to wear gloves when peeling alder. This stuff is really hard to get off your hands.
