Every year I try to make sure and harvest all the seeds my plants put off, although it seems that I’ve only been able to save the seeds from my balloon flowers.
I still have about 20-30 more pods to go from this one plant. It got baked to bits in the heat. When I went out to harvest the seed pods yesterday, I found that there’s an entire new dome of growth under all that dryness.
I’ve got seeds dating back as far as 2013. Guess I’ll need to do some planting come Spring.
