With my "Blogging Seed Swap" still in my mind I want to make sure I'm saving plenty of seeds this year. I've never been great at it, either leaving it too late or not storing them correctly, so this year I'm making a real effort.
On my window sill I currently have lots of pepper seeds drying. Some from my chilli pepper "Cherry Bomb" and the others from either yellow or red "Mini Bell Peppers". These are then being labled up and stored in old cod liver oil tablets containers to keep them dry.

I've also got lots of fennel seeds to collect to use as a spice in the kitchen and some salad seeds to use as micro greens through the winter.
How does everyone else go about saving seeds and how good are you at it?
Does anyone save seeds from biannual plants and how do you go about keeping plants separate to prevent cross pollination?
Don't forget if you want to be part of the seed swap then start saving your seeds now and in a couple of months we can start to share them out!
