Following are suggestions regarding the 10 vegetable seeds I try to gro

* The seeds of different types of beans should be planted well away from each other whenever possible to avoid any chance of cross-pollination.

* When selecting the seeds of corn, closely examine both the plant and the ears of corn. Choose the best ears from the earliest-bearing plants.

* When you’re preparing cucumber seeds for storage, cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and scrape out the seedy pulp. Put the pulp and the seeds in a bowl of water to ferment. The heavy seeds will sink to the bottom, making it easy to drain and rinse them.

* A cool weather crop, lettuce can be eaten early but has a long season for seed saving. Lettuce seeds don’t all ripen at once.

* Melon seeds are ripe enough to collect and store when melons are ripe enough to eat.

* Let peppers ripen beyond the eating stage before collecting their seeds, which will be ready when the fruit is no longer green.

* When spinach leaves begin to turn yellow, the seeds are nearly mature. The leafiest plants should be chosen for seed saving.

* Harvest tomato seeds when the fruits are fully ripe. Save the seeds from the fruits of several plants.

* When berries turn red and ferny top leaves flop over in the fall, asparagus seeds are ready to harvest.

* You’ll get plenty of seeds from beets. In fact, what may look like a single seed is probably several seeds in a ball. When they turn brown, you’ll know they are mature.
