I bought some gardening magazines at the market on Sunday and I am trying to learn some gardening techniques for my garden at my new home. I haven't really had much interest in gardening until now. I am sick of tasteless vegetables and we will have enough yard to make some garden beds.
I read an interesting article on how to dry tomato seeds.The article said to scoop out the seeds and put them in a strainer and then wash them by dipping the strainer into a bowl of water. Then strain the water off and place the seeds on paper towel. When they are completely dry they can be kept for later planting. Instead of trying to get the seeds off the paper towel, just cut a square around the seeds and plant the square of seeds, paper towel included. What a great idea!!
A dear old man brought some home grown tasty tomatoes into work yesterday, so I thought I would save some seeds for planting. I will let you know if it works next year!
