    This is my favorite and most rewarding part of gardening is saving the seeds! That also means I get to share with others! Thank you for sharing all of this information!

    Thank you so much for this easier tip about tomatoes! I have been mildly fermenting the seeds to get the sack off the seed. But this is way easier!!!

    Hi Ashleigh, I am a 70 year-old gardener in Colorado on the eastern plains, and I love your articles! You write beautifully and impart a LOT of great information. I have one suggestion for people saving seeds: I always ferment my tomato seeds to clear the gelatinous membrane and it’s worked for the 64 years I’ve been gardening; then I wash them and to dry them I use a strainer and then I put them on flattened coffee filters. Paper towel will stick to wet seeds, and may interfere with germination if it’s stuck. Just a suggestion. Grow on girl, you’re doing great!

    Wow, I had no idea that inside cones has seeds. Loved the blog post about seed savings and what they look like when it’s time for seed saving. I am a newbie gardener and I’m finding these blogs to be super helpful!

    I had tried saving seeds unsuccessfully before. Now I’ll know how to make sure they’re really dry and consider saving them out with silica gel. How long will my seeds keep?
