collecting and storing seeds
we have been dutifully collecting seeds (or what we think are seeds) from the plants during harvest. they've been left to dry out and we're in the process of putting the best ones in envelopes to plan next season.
we've got a bit stuck with beetroot and sweetcorn which we've never grown before and had varied success with this year.
here's 2 pictures of what we've collected. are they really seeds and what should we do with them?
also, what do i do with the beets when picked from the containers? the first few i picked didn't store well and went woody and dry. i had put them in a hessian sack.
all help would be very greatfully received
