I’m a seed saver. This morning I began cutting this lovely tomato (rescued from bitter cold a few weeks ago and ripened in the house) when I realized it had a lot of seed I might want to save. I frequently check in with the Deva of the Garden about saving a particular fruit’s seed. So I asked if I should save this seed and received a “yes” response.
I gathered the seeds on a plate . . .
Now the seeds are sitting in fresh water for a few days. This will allow the seeds to separate from the remaining pulp which will ferment. Later I will place the seeds on a plate to dry thoroughly. (I’ve tried drying tomato seeds on a paper towel which was not a good idea. The seeds stuck to the paper towel so I ended up planting little pieces of paper towel with several seeds attached — kind of like a “seed tape” which you can buy for some types of vegetable seeds.)
