Ordering seeds from a catalog is a fairly new luxury. For most of history, if you wanted to eat vegetables year after year, it was necessary to save the seeds from the plants in your garden.  Some garden varieties are very easy to save and others require more attention.  Learn how to hand-pollinate squash so the seeds will “grow true.”
