Last summer I saved seeds from just about every fruit or vegetable that crossed my path. I have grape seeds, peach seeds, okra seeds, five different varieties of peppers, long-necked pumpkins, cucumbers, and snow peas just to name a few.
The past month I decided to get them started in the house so they’re ready to transplant when Pennsylvania’s unpredictable seasons finally decide it’s time for warms. The hard lesson I’ve learned is this: patience!
It seems so obvious. But just when I was ready to give up on my grapes and peaches, I began to see sprouts fighting to the surface. Some I had already given up on and used the container to start some store-bought seeds, but right now I have three grapes and two peach trees looking very, very promising.
