|Basil seeds can be harvested now - wait till brown and dry|
2014 has started with hot summer temperatures and not as much rain as we would all like here in SE QLD. Many gardeners put down the tools, mulch well and turn to container gardens for essential herbs and vegies during these conditions ... waiting for rain and more moderate temps to return before starting autumn planting.
Still, summer affords us a bounty of many edible species putting on growth and going to seed. A great time for seed savers to collect, process and save for future planting.
So if vegies and herbs are bolting to flower and seed, grab your scissors, pen and a paper bag and become a treasure hunter in your garden to collect a bounty while available!
