FREE Printable Seed Saver Packets01. October 2017
When I was a kid, I remember seeing bowls of tomato seeds fermenting on my Grandpap’s porch. He had baskets of crusty looking bean pods drying too. I asked him why he didn’t just buy more seed packets next year, and he laughed. After all, why would he buy something that he already had? All he had to do was collect some seeds. It’s not difficult. And it’s not that time consuming either. And if you have a great bumper crop of beans, you’d be a fool not to collect those seeds.
My Grandpa John was a master green thumb, an organic gardener, and champion of heirloom varieties. His tomatoes and pumpkins were enormous. His strawberries were sweeter than sugar. He grew cockscomb rooster flowers that were bigger than my upper torso. He was self-reliant, frugal, and overflowing with common sense. Back in the day, many folks were just like him. I feel like there’s a new generation of people who are becoming closer to nature now. They’re planting community gardens, composting, saving seeds, and building a more secure food system. But most importantly, they are preserving history and spreading knowledge.
If you’re new to saving seeds, check out Seed Savers Exchange. They have a wealth of knowledge on the best practices and techniques to get started. You can also join their Exchange to swap seeds with other members. Once you start saving seed, you’ll appreciate the tradition of handing down and trading seed varieties.

What type of paper should I use to print the seed packets? Thank you so much! :)
Marlene, I used regular printer paper, but you could also use cardstock paper for a heaver-duty envelope.
