I had Silver Queen seeds left over from last year I planted for my first corn crop. The new bag of seeds I bought for the second corn crop says Silver Queen but the corn it grew looks like Peaches and Cream.
I bought 2 bags of Blue Lake Bush beans this year, 1 from Farmers Co-op and 1 from the Garden Center. 1 bag is a mix of about 20% pole beans.
The 4 beef steak tomato plants that I bought took 4 months to make ripe tomatoes. I sliced the tomatoes I can see they are not beef steak, they don't taste as good as beef steak either.
This year I am saving seeds so I know what I have next year. Saving seeds is a pain in the butt considering it took me 2 hours to save 1 lb. of Blue Lake bush bean seeds and a 1 lb bag of seeds is $5.00. I have enough corn ears saved for about 300 seeds all I really need next year is 100 seeds. I have squeezed the seeds from Big Beef, Beef Master, and Jet Star into buckets of water, then sifted them out and dried them on paper plates. I am not sure these will be true Big Beef, Beef Master, and Jet Star next year just have to wait and see. At lease I have enough tomato seeds to plant directly in the garden next spring I have very good luck planting about 15 seeds in each spot they usually all come up and 1 plant over powers all the rest.
I saved watermelon seeds too.
Once the weather gets cooler and we start having more rain the pepper plants will start to grow and I will have seeds to save. October I will save 50 okra seeds that is all I need.
