Seed Save Begins

I started washing tomato seed saved from bagged blossoms today and also saved more seed from collected fruit. In my laundry cupboard I now have plastic cups containing seed from Black Cherry, Sprite, Lime Green Salad and more Little Heart. All this seed will be used next season for my plant sale, but there are a lot of varieties still in the garden yet to ripen that will be added to this list.

I sowed the seed today for the F3 generation of Little Heart, which I'm expecting to grow as my hothouse Autumn crop, along with a few 'Siletz' which are currently just getting their first true leaves.

Here are some 'Nicoleta' seeds from last season.
