My impetus was the $100 I spent on seeds this spring and maybe more importantly the goal of pushing my seed and plant genetics to be more locally adapted.
My city doesn't have a seed library yet so if I'm successful I may start a library in a year or two.

I'm hoping the red russian kale overwinters so that I can try to save some seed if it ever goes to seed. This year we saved tomatoes, peppers, tried to save eggplant but I don't think they were mature enough. As well as a few herbs that bolted in the middle of the summer. Does saving seed from a bolted plant rather than one that matures slowly make a difference in the quality of the seed?
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
