Seed Saving


Seed Saving

Although it is a bit late, it is not too late to save some seed from the garden of 2013. I’ve been doing this since September and am just completing it as this is being written. Meantime, I’ve come across a handy-dandy article simply entitled: How to Save Seed. While this is a modest and unassuming article it might also be called: The Idiots Guide to Saving Seeds or Saving Seed for Dummies. It is a complete guide to seed saving and seems to be written for both the novice, as well as, the experienced gardener. I highly recommend this for reading as well as cutting and pasting to your files. Keep in mind that seed saving will be an important part of self-sufficiency should the economic system fail, or should the mega-corporations decide to patent plants and seeds. Yes, I did say patent plants and seeds of natural living plants, (see http://beforeitsnews.com/food-and-farming/2013/11/nestle-stop-trying-to-patent-the-fennel-flower-2457470.html ).

            In a paper published last year, Nestlé scientists claimed to “discover”
what much of the world has known for millennia: that nigella sativa
extract could be used for “nutritional interventions in humans with food
allergy”.

Meantime, here is the web citation:

About Catholic Rural Solutions

This group is for the practical application of Catholic Distributist teachings as promoted by Pope St. Pius X, Belloc, Chesterton, Maurin and others in the 20th century. This group is also a respite for traditional Catholics who adhere to the Tridentine Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and who share a concern for small independent Catholic communities throughout the world. These communities while primarily small holding farmers, craftsmen and tradesman all espouse an integrated life based on Catholic Social Justice and the Sacred Magisterium of the Church. Through this we intend to inject the Distributist economic principles into the greater society. Please fell free to share your experiences in this vein. Flaming, proselytizing and persecution WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
