I'm cheap and it masquerades as "earthy"

Day one of saving tomato seeds.

In case you can't read the crappy labels, we've got green zebra on the left and pink beefsteak on the right.

I almost didn't do this right; I still may have to re-do with more seeds. We'll see come spring. With tomato seeds you apparently have to ferment them before they'll germinate, and so I had to dig into the compost to get some of the fruit (which I totally ate once the seeds were out).

If it seems not to ferment, I can have a do over in a couple of days.
