How to collect vegetable seeds - Red Russian Kale seeds

The most sustainable and affordable way to grow is by collecting your seeds.

What I do is, I let the plant go to flower and go to seed at the end of it’s season. These are Red-Russian Kale seed pods ready for picking.

When the seed pods turn yellow to brown in colour, it is ready for collection.

I scrape the seed pods into a brown paper bag. A brown paper bag is best, because it allows the pods to breath and wouldn’t go moldy.

You could leave the pods in the paper bag as it is or remove the seeds from the seed pod and release it into the paper bag.

Label it and store it in a cool dry place.
