A little while ago I posted an entry about drying squash seeds and I have been saving and drying these and other seeds since including pumpkin and melon.

There was a little incident recently when mice found the seeds but luckily they only ate a few of them and then moved on to tastier finds.

One of the annoying things about saving and drying seeds is how fiddly it is… cue my housemate Jakob with an ingenious idea – why not put them, goop and all into a big bowl of water, mix it about and let the seeds float to the top! Much more fun…
