So..the last 3 years we have been growing some heirloom tomatoes..so we figured this year we would actually try to save some seeds since we ran out of a couple of varieties while planting earlier in the spring..the process is not overly complicated..but can be if you are lazy like me.
First step..scoop out the seeds and pulp from the tomato(es) and put about a 1/3 water to the mix..1/3 of whatever the pulp and seed combination was.
..put aside for 4-6 days in a warmish place to let the seeds begin to ferment…
..and once a yummy layer of scum develops on the mix you are ready to clean..run water into the mix and swirl..the good seeds will sink the bottom..the rest you keep pouring out.
Drain and dry then place the seeds on some glass to finish the drying process…and DONE..took a grand total off 10 minutes of actual work..the waiting is too hard sometimes though!
