Saving seed

Popped down this morning to cut a lettuce for myself.
I noticed that a stray onion that grow near the spuds is blooming. I might try and save its seed, see what happens. I also left on a couple of the red onion flowers to try with them too.
There is a scarole lettuce bolting too, I might try gathering seed from that.
One of the pumpkins I planted this year was from saved seed. I recently read that this is a bad idea. So I might end up with some weird cross pollinated pumpkins :-( oh well, can only wait and see now.
I had thought of saving some of my broad beans but apparently they cross pollinate really easily and my neighbour grows broad beans so I guess they will be getting chucked out this weekend. Looks like a good place to grow my broccoli that is itching to go in the ground....

The ground is so dry now isn't it....even up here in the north of england where usually we are swimming in rain!
