My dad is pretty good in collecting seeds for next year planting season.
He labeled them in Lao language and keeps them in a dry place.
The pumpkin seeds still need several days of sun to dry.
The Chili peppers are hung to dry.
I asked my dad for string bean seeds to give to a friend, the hand-sewn cloth bag will be easy to transport by mail and also good for storing seeds.
I also asked my dad for the Asian corn seeds. When he brought it down from the kitchen cabinet he was shocked to see what had happened to them. He dried them last month and stored them in a cooler, I guess the hot and humid temperature inside the cooler must have caused the moisture and moldy. I’m glad we found it in time but he didn’t feel comfortable giving these away not knowing if they will germinate next Spring. As for seeds, it is best to store them in a cool area until planting time, I guess now he knows.
