Sunflowers (& Why I Have Hope for the World)

Dec 14, 2018
 

Friends, I need more than hands and toes to count the number of times people this week have told me their child asked to give or receive sunflower seeds this holiday season.

Ironically, I really don't recommend saving your squash seeds to sow next season, unless you know a great deal about its life story.

Why Squash Seed Usually Doesn't Grow True to Type

Many varieties are F1 Hybrids, which won't grow true to type when saved. If you've bought your squash from a grocer or even a farmer's market, chances are good it's an F1 Hybrid. So...
