So I did a little research this morning on how to save the seeds of my favorite plants in my garden so that I can use them next season to plant those same varieties and enjoy the deliciousness for yet another year. I found out that some seeds (my tomatoes and cucumbers) need to be fermented and some seeds do not (green beans and watermelons). I've picked a few tomatoes for the "experiment" and we'll see how it goes. With a little luck I'll have another round of delicious Tommy Toes, Cherokee Purples and Better Boy tomatoes, as well as Burpless cucumbers and pole beans (stringed green beans) for next year.
