Saving Seeds

I learned a quick and easy way to save seeds after attending a class on peppers at the Heirloom Festival in Santa Rosa.  You take a coffee filter and write the name of the seeds you are saving, also include any notes about the plant, such as flavor or color.  Next place the seeds in the middle of the coffee filter and fold the sides around them.  Slip the entire thing into a clear ziplock bag.  The coffee filter not only keeps the seeds dry, it contains your notes which will not fade or wash off.  Come spring, you will be able to easily take out the seeds and get planting!
