northern girl Last fall was my first experience with saving seeds (not counting the few radishes that always seem to get away from me and repopulate all over my garden). I had gotten a beautiful French Heirloom pumpkin seed packet and was afraid I wouldnt be able to find them again, so I saved as many seeds as I could. I started a dozen plants a couple weeks ago and had a 100% germination rate!

Don K Another easy way to clean tomato seeds is to put the seed pulp in a jar with lukewarm water and seal tight. Let them set a few days and the pulp will go to the top of the jar and the seeds will sink to the bottom. Pour off nastiness and rinse seeds in cold water. Spread in a dry, windless place. A old window screen works good. When dry seal in a envelope until needed.

Smoosh the seed out of the tomato onto a saucer or plate,let them ferment till they get all gross looking,wash them clean and allow to dry at room temp.Keep them in a dark,dry place till you want to plant them.

Bizarro Something I noticed, that I have already screwed up is to not plant same family different variety close to each other as you will probably end up with hybrids

oif1man Thanks for the link. I just started a garden and was curious about saving the seeds--just in case. I figure this is an excellent way to prepare for any "incident" that may arise. Heck, even if nothing happens I will at least save money and have fresh vegetables.
