hi folks, my first post, just started an allotment, my first time growing so im guessing ill be here a lot Very Happy !!!

question about getting seeds, i have salad leaves, bok choi, spinach and rocket that i allowed to go to flower in my back yard, i want to harvest seeds from these as i would eat quite a lot of these in particular.
i cant seem to see the seeds on the plant though, the flowers dont seem to have anything that i would describe as a seed, i want to become self suffient with my own seeds as soon as possible because i have quite a variety growing in the allotment now and getting seeds every year would cost that much it would defeat the point really!
i really am learning at this stage so please be gentle with your comments! hope to hear from someone and thanks, i love the site benefited greatly from it so far

If it's any help, there's a specialist vegetable book entitled 'Seed To Seed' by Suzanne Ashworth, ISBN 0-9613977-7-2, published by Seed Savers Exchange.

It's an American book but will probably put you on the right track.

Peas and beans are probably the easiest but tomatoes are a bit complicated so you must make your own decisions but 'Good Luck'!
