Saving Marigold Seeds 
Marigolds are natural insect repellents in vegetable gardens. The e red one here,
I started indoors from seed. Although I transplanted it later in the season, it's starting to bloom and really take off. A few of the orange marigolds I planted earlier, are beginning to die and wither away. When the flowers die, the buds close up and dry. I pulled some of the dried pods. Peel them open and inside you'll find the seeds. They're very thin; like needles. Collect and save your seeds for your next garden and you can save lots of money too.
