I want to apologize for not posting for so long, normally I would never let weeks go by between posts, but I do have a good reason.....I was in the hospital for a few days. If you have ever been in the hospital, you know how fun it is. NOT! It has taken a while, but I am now on the road to recovery, and back to the blog! I have some great ideas for posts for the rest of the summer, so stay tuned! Now, on to how to save tomato seeds!
1. Start out with a very ripe tomato, in other words, let it grow for a bit longer than you normally would before picking it.
2. Cut the tomato in half and take a teaspoon and scoop out the insides, goop and all. Do not try to separate out the seeds.
3. Dump the insides of the tomato in a glass jar and add about an inch of water.
4. Set the jar on your counter and shake the mixture a few times a day.
5. When the seeds all sink to the bottom (should take less than a week) scoop the goop, that will still be floating, off the top and rinse the remaining seeds thoroughly.
6. Place the seeds on a paper towel, and let them dry. This should take about two weeks.
7. When fully dry, place in a paper envelope and the type of seed and the date.
