I want to be able to keep seeds from vegetables from the grocery store, but I have just been keeping them in bowls in the kitchen, which takes up a lot of room after a while. I decided to copy the the seed packet from the lettuce that I bought from Walmart and make my own. I made a Word document that has the outline of where to fold, so now I just have to change the picture and label, print, throw on a little glue, and I have my own seed packet! I plan on saving seeds for what I want to grow in the spring so that I don't have to buy any. I know that I run the risk of buying a vegetable that has seed that won't produce fruit, but I'm going to try anyway and see how many end up like that. If anyone wants a copy of the pattern, just let me know it's here!.

  • That’s a good idea! A pumpkin we carved last halloween got put in our compost pile and it started to grow, so you never know which fruits/veggies may yield something yummy!
