1. you will have better success if you cut flowers that have began to dry out in the garden. I cut the stems to be roughly the same length and pick off the leaves. 2. Place the cut flowers in a brown paper bag. 3. Label the bag because once they dry they will be hard to tell a part. 4. Tie the stems together and the bag closed to hang. 5. Place in a dry storage area. When you open the bag in a few weeks you will find the seeds have fallen to the bottom of the bag. You can do this right away or wait till it is time to plant next spring.
The collage above features today's picks loaded in the back of my garden cart.
Oppie Kitty eagerly waits for me in the drivers seat of the golf cart as I take a few photos of todays' picks loaded in the back dump bed. The grapes are tasting yummy this time of year so I was sure to pick a bunch for dessert tonight. I am loving the way the macro lens captures these late summer harvest goodies.
