    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?

    This is such a helpful post! As a beginner gardener, I am trying to stay with heirloom varieties and learning how to do this is critical to my success. Thanks!

    Thank you True Leaf I find your emails very informative. I enjoy saving seeds from the garden and always share seeds with neighbors. I have noticed saved seeds from my garden do very well in my garden even if I have purchased from other seed suppliers
