Tender and True Parsnip seed saving

The one thing I would advise all seed savers is to collect and process your seed as soon as you can. This doesn't mean before it is ready but when it is, do it pronto. Otherwise you end up finding a bucket of old seed in the back of the shed with a dead mouse in it. Not good.

So today it is parsnip seed collection day. It's coming off by the seed and going straight into a used tissue box, with some silica gel packs, until totally dry. Then it will be packed into small bags and shared out amongst seed circles.
