When I found this awesome Seed saving video tutorial by Grow Organic Peaceful Valley, on YouTube, I had to try these wonderful ideas. We get all of our heirloom varieties of vegetables from careful seed saving, and as it turns out it is not difficult to do yourself. Tomatoes are just about everyone’s favorite, and the seeds from them are probably the easiest to save. You will be better off saving self-pollinating vegetables, so the cross-pollination process doesn’t get too involved. With a self-pollinating variety, your seed will come true next year with no problems. The other easy seeds to save are peppers and beans.
To save tomato seeds, you will want to pick the most healthy tomatoes on the vine. Then, you will slice open the tomato and scoop the pill out into a mason jar with a lid. Then, you will add fresh purified water, and close the lid. You will let that mixture ferment for 5 days at room temperature. The mixture will be frothy, and you will remove the floater seeds, then strain the rest of the liquid off, then lay out to dry naturally.
Then lay the seeds out to dry naturally.
There are so many more seed-saving methods in this wonderful video tutorial, and they are all awesome!
