Do you save seeds for planting or do you buy packets of seeds? Or do you prefer to buy seedlings?

I bought seed packets to get my garden started, plus a few seedlings because I'm not very experienced as a gardener and some things I just completely failed at growing from seed. I've saved seeds from my marigolds and a few other things I grew.
I LOVE saving seeds where I can - embracing the "food is free" philosophy! I save seeds from my pumpkins and rockmelons and plant (okay...dump them!) them in my compost heap - they love it there! I hate forking out money on seedlings - you pay so much more than for seeds and get so much less...but If it's herbs or something that will be a high yield I don't mind so much. Especially parsley - I read on my parsley seed packet that the seeds take a month to germinate...I've forgotten where I put them and planted something over them long before that! lol
Lizzi, Have the plants come up now, that you planted the seeds of, on top of the parsley seeds?

This year will be the first year we actively do it, I can't wait!
I have done all.

But sadly now do not have the space to plant, so I give some to my daughter-in-law, like pumpkin seeds.She loves planting seeds, and has a huge back yard.
No, that's because we currently don't plant anything. When we get into our own place, I would love to though.

I year, long ago, I looked over our verandah, & saw a very long pumpkin plant growing along the fence line on our side! It did have a bit of sun then, but it died off before the flowers turned into seeds!
It's very overgrown with awful privet now, down by the fence line!!!
