Maggie and Dave use the South Osborne Community Gardens as this week’s studio space and are blown away by its beauty and sense of community. They start the episode with a few fun announcements coming up soon — a Garden Club Tour (check out for more info) and an end of season garden party (date TBD!). Then it’s all about their Favourite Varieties, Zephyr summer squash for Maggie (5:30) and the Marimo Moss Ball for Dave (7:24). An awesome listener question about when to plant strawberries (10:10), leads the conversation into caring for them over winter and sourcing zone-specific berries. Then it’s all about seed saving (13:25)! Maggie and Dave recap the different types of seeds — heirloom, open pollinated and hybrid (15:25), viability (19:02), annuals vs. perennials (20:00), rookie friendly seeds to harvest (25:36), more challenging seeds to save (30:17), saving seeds from tropical (33:03), tips and tricks to the seed saving process itself (34:23) and storing (39:26).
