Last summer, I described the best way to save seeds from vegetable plants. For many plants, such as tomatoes, the ‘best practice’ is said to be by “fermenting” the seeds in a jar for a few days before drying. So, when saving my own tomato seeds I tested this method against my typical ‘lazy gal’s” method of just letting the tomatoes rot a bit in the field and then collecting the seeds. Last month, when I planted the seeds I noted on the markers whether they were F (fermented) or not. Theoretically, the fermented seeds should have germinated at a higher rate. Now, the results are in. ALL the tomato seeds germinated and they are now ALL healthy seedlings. I will keep comparing as they grow and letting you know if I ever see a difference. For now, I am just happy to have many, many healthy little tomato plants growing away in my library.
