Can I Plant Seeds From Bell Peppers?
I saved some seed from early bell peppers this year. I have dried them but am not sure that I should plant them this year. Is it prosperous to plant seeds from same year crop? I know my grandmother always kept her seeds for future use but don't remember how she stored them or in which season she planted them. How do I store the seeds for future use? Or-- do I not even attempt it?

If you live in an area where you have a full growing season ahead of you, there is no problem with planting the seeds now.
If you do not have a full growing season ahead right now, you can store the seeds for the next growing season by placing them in a paper envelop, which can be placed in a plastic bag or tupperware container and then this can be placed in the veggie drawer of your fridge. You can store them this way until you are ready to plant and pepper seeds remain viable for many years when stored this way.
