Planting your own vegetable garden is a great way to save money on produce. Seeds are inexpensive to purchase, and can provide fresh vegetables for the family. When there are seeds left over after planting a garden, there are a few options for using the seeds.
Give the seeds away. Ask friends and neighbors if they have a need for the particular seeds you have. If they don't need them, ask a local garden group if they want the seeds.
Dry your seeds out, and save them for next year in an air-tight container. This method can save you from having to buy seeds the following year.
Roast your vegetable seeds and eat them as a snack. You can even toss them on a salad if you want. Rinse the seeds off in a colander, and then dry them off with some paper towels. Set them on a baking sheet. Spray or drip olive oil over the seeds, and then sprinkle salt over them. Cook for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Flip the seeds half way through the cooking time.
Help your children create a craft project with the leftover vegetable seeds. Separate the seeds and then paint each set a different color. Let the paint dry. Give your children each a sheet of blank paper and have them draw an outline of their favorite things. Then glue the colored vegetable seeds inside of the outline to make a mosaic picture.
