Saving Lettuce Seeds Attempt #1

There are a lot of ways listed on-line as to how to save lettuce seeds.  I listened to Fr. J at work, my second gardening mentor, because he is into simple.

1. Let the lettuce go to seed.  In our case, it was about 4-foot tall and the flowers at the top were doing their very best dandelion imitation.

2. Cut about 6-12 inches off the top.  Basically, you want them long enough to easily do step 3.

3. Hang them upside down in a paper bag in the garage until the dry seeds end up collected at the bottom of the bag.

Turn in next spring and I’ll let you know how it worked…..
