Thanks to this coronavirus pandemic, Iโ€™ve been spending a lot of time in my backyard, and itโ€™s been soothing to watch the plants grow and blossom! Here are some studies of a few of the plants that are growing there. I must add that the only reason these plants are still alive is because my boyfriend Arjen tends to them - I do not have green fingers like he does! Are you good with plants?

More from the Terrarium Life series :D Books and plants and hanging stars, these days I just want to be a child again.

I had hoped to finish these much sooner but it sucks to be forced to slow down due to my hand pain. Though I've been trying out a new technique that might help. The lump in my palm hurts most when my fingers are closed while holding a pen, so I've put a soft clay in my fist to prevent my fingers from fully closing. So far so good, if this works out long term I might be able to draw faster again, even before surgery. Fingers crossed!

Seed saving in the city!

There is nothing more rewarding than following a plant through its entire life-cycle and being able to practice non-attachment by having to let go of the beauty that once was for the promise of a new life. Itโ€™s a great dress rehearsal for the bigger challenges we undoubtedly must face in life. There is a deep significance that lies in walking the journey of life and death and rebirth with your plants. The messiness and brutality of nature and death must be embraced to be able to assist in a new beginning. Itโ€™s also really cool!

We are focusing our traffic circle garden on seed saving this year. For city gardeners, seed saving is a bit of a different experience than in rural areas for reasons such as minimal gardening space, cross pollination and unsightliness (to some but not to us!).

When you are growing seeds in the city, depending on which seeds you are saving, cross pollination can occur more easily because things are densely planted and there are many more varieties in the vicinity.

Also, when seed saving, you have to let your plants die which means itโ€™s not as aesthetically pleasing. Like our sunflowers here which have not yet reached maturity, look rather defeated when they are ready for seed harvesting, teetering on the edge of existence or laying down all brown, yellow and crispy.

Some plants can be plucked out of the ground and hung to dry but most seeds benefit greatly from drying out right on the plant while itโ€™s still in the soil. In our garden we are growing seeds from our Italian parsley, spinach, swiss chard, poppies, nasturtiums, sunflowers, larkspur, arugula, kale, brussels sprouts, beans (various kinds), radish and have already collected our chive seeds.

There are many factors to growing the most resilient seeds possible and there are lots of resources available online on how to do that. Some recommend having a certain amount of the same type of plants like kale growing together in order to cross pollinate the strongest seed. Some plants of the same species like radish and mustard greens will cross with each other creating a potentially unwanted hybrid.

One thing thatโ€™s for sure though, if you have a small garden you can harvest the seeds from only one plant of pretty much anything and have enough to last you and your friends for a very long time.

Each poppy flower will produce around 17,000 seeds. One kale plant also produces thousands of seeds. Nasturtiums are a great starter plant for so many reasons, one of which are that the seeds are the size of chickpeas and are strewn on the ground below the plant so very easy to spot when ready or can be harvested green right off the plant and can be left to dry with no special attention given to the drying process.

Seed saving is really fun and a very significant act in the garden. It is something we sometimes take for granted when it should be as important as growing the food itself because in one seed there contains a lifetime of food and also a lifetime of lessons.
