I bought a set of strainers ...one is a 400 and other is 600 ( I want to say I got them from Uline ,Bob knows the company as he put me onto them), stack them so the smaller mesh is on the bottom,and place over a clean white 5 gallon bucket. Rub the dried pods between your hands vigorously , the seed will pass through the first one and get caught by the second , chaf goes through and into the bucket. Between varieties , shake and wipe the strainers clean . I store my seed in tiny ziplock bags ,put those in with some of those silica gel packs in a bigger ziplock bag.Maybe this is just obvious, and that's why I haven't found a pre existing thread on it, but when and how does one harvest seed? What are the first steps after harvesting?
The plants have continued to grow since I bagged them and they're pretty stretched out. They also continue to flower.
