Tomato update

Earlier this summer I posted about trying to germinate tomato seeds for next summer's garden.  I took some more pictures but never added them here! (Or I can't find the post. Practically the same thing.)

As a reminder: here's the tomato whose seeds I harvested:

Then, according to this article, you put 'em in a jar and let them get moldy:

Then you rinse them off, dry them, and voila! Seeds for next summer's planting! I've got a lot... anyone want some?


  1. ha, the only time i've grown tomatoes from seed were ones that surprised me -- they grew from tomatoes that had fallen on the ground the summer before! i'm impressed with your work.

  2. I've never grown anything from seed. Ever. So... we'll see how this goes. I'm sure I'll post updates in the spring!
