Another way to store seed is in a squash

Another way to store seed is in a squash

3 important considerations

1️⃣  I’m obviously not saying to put seed in a squash for better storage. The insides of fresh squash are pretty moist environments and generally horrible as seed storage containers.  But if you haven’t extracted your squash seed yet, no big problem. It actually keeps getting better the longer it stays in the squash.

2️⃣  Make sure you grew your squash isolated from other squash of the same species. Otherwise you will get a surprise. Crossers gonna cross!

3️⃣  Check your squash regularly to see if they’re starting to go bad. Rotten gross squash is not great for seed or kitchen cupboards. If you consistently save seed from the longest storing squash you should ultimately get longer storing squash.


My next free online workshop is on Thursday January 6 at 2pm Eastern
