It is organized to help everyone start with the easiest-to-save vegetables. My hope is that you will gain confidence from what you learn and move on through the book to the more complex varieties and procedures. Too many times I have seen new seed saving students get lost or discouraged by a barrage of complex concepts at the beginning of a seed saving book or workshop. Remember, detailed lessons in biology and genetics are only necessary for seed growers at the industrial and market breeder levels. Home gardeners can afford to be playful and make “mistakes.” In fact, many of the world’s favorite crops are the result of small farmers and gardeners playfully experimenting with the resulting surprises found in their own fields and backyards. Start with the easy varieties at the front of the book. Have fun! And let yourself become inspired. If you give this process a chance, I am confident the seeds themselves will lead you deeper down the path into the magical world of seed saving.
