Seed saving – Zucchini

quarteracrelifestyle

Image2 huge marrows have been adorning our front porch all winter – I am not quite sure why we left them there so long but I think hubby thought they looked ornamental alongside a weird pumpkin. The outside were very tough to cut but the insides rich with colour and fiber and lots of plump seeds.

These are Cocobelle, a heirloom variety. We bought 10 seeds a few years back and have been doing our own ever since. My husband would normally smash these but as I generally have to clean up the mess I cut them….and quite a few of the seeds!

Left to dry for a week in a cool, dry spot these will be ready for planting and enough seeds for potting up for others and storing.
