Self Pollination

Self pollinated is exactly as it states. The plant pollinates its flowers by using the pollen produced inside that flower. Certain veggies are noted to be self pollinators. 

The self pollinators that I grow here in the farm include ...
... Tomatoes
... Spinach
... Lettuce
... Peas
... Beans
... Peppers
... Eggplant

Self pollinators make it easy to produce seed for saving. But care still needs to be taken because some self pollinators are also capable of cross pollination. Self pollinators can be grown in a screened greenhouse, because they pollinate themselves. No need to use a small paintbrush to hand pollinate the flowers.
