Gardens: Seed Saving area

We decided it would make sense to create an area specifically for seed saving for a variety of reasons: making it clear that the plants are only for saving, not for harvesting; making it easier to prevent cross-pollination (i.e. for brassicas); and having a space for plants that take two years to produce seed (i.e. carrots). We chose part of Terrace Uno for our purpose and, like in other gardens, installed a drip irrigation system and built raised beds. We have planted/transplanted beetroots, carrots, oriental greens – purple flowering choi sum and mizuna, broccolis, lettuces and shallots.
