Easy Ways to Collect, Save, & Store your Seeds...
I found a great way to collect strawberry seeds from your favorite tasting berries. These were mine...
I was having a heck of a messy time trying to get them out of the red gushy juicy stuff!
Then it occurred to me...
I began to pull the seeds from a dry berry with ease! I was shocked as they came off the berries with no messy gushy red stuff, and I plunked them into a cup...
Dry and ready to be planted...or stored in the fridge/cool area!
Now if only tomato seeds were this easy!
There are different ways of saving tomato seeds and I find them to be the messiest of all. I like to lay mine on a papertowel straight from the tomato, and let them dry right on the sheet for a few days...
Then I just tear off pieces of the paper towel, with the seed stuck to it, and bury them under the soil. They sprout with ease and the paper towel disintegrates over time.
Please feel free to post your ways of collecting, saving, & storing your seeds too...
