Day 64 of 365 days in the community garden

Onion flowers getting ready to set seed (Photo by Samuel). Onion seeds are easy to collect - wait for the tops to start falling over and dying back, and the tops to go brown. Seeds are black when they are ready to be collected, but be careful not to let the heads dry out so much that you lose the seeds. Collect the seeds and allow them to dry completely, and then store in a dry container in a cool dark place

"A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust." Gertrude Jekyll
