Naomi, in the car today: "What would happen if you took seeds from a pepper...? If you took seeds from a pepper that you grew in the backyard, and you took out the seeds, and you saved them until next year and then you planted them, could you grow the same peppers in the backyard?"
(Me: "They would grow, for sure. Actually, that's how I grew lots of our tomatoes this year, by saving the seeds from last year. Let's try it!")
