Seed Saving.

This year we have started to save some of our seeds to grow crops from in the future. So far we have saved "Green in Snow" mustard, purple sprouting broccoli, "Red Russian" kale, a mystery kale that sprang up on its own (probably left over from the previous tenants), "Ambassador" peas, and "Meteor" peas. 
Peas drying in the polytunnel to provide next year's seeds.
Not only does seed-saving reduce the money we spend on seed, it allows us to reclaim this process from seed companies/corporations. Plus the crop will develop over time, year after year, adapting to the conditions of our farm.
