Embdy know anythin aboot tamatas?

See if ye get a particularly smashing lot of wee cherry tamatas from the fruit and veg shop  Cool , can ye save the seeds from them and grow yer own?

How long can the seeds be kept for before sowing?  

<still with the old proper Beechgrove Garden mandolin-y theme tune in ma heid>


Aye sure yea can.
I wait till the tomato starts to collapse then squash it wash out as many seeds as you can then spread them on an organic paper towel (no chemicals to knock them off) let it dry thoroughly before storing in a cool dark place.
Come spring tear off a square of paper with the seeds in & put in a wee seed pot with good potting soil water & grow. Nae bother. Very Happy
I have planted seeds that have been kept like that for 3 years.

And in the leki forum:
probably a guid place for it when ye consider the amount of manure the chief leki has be distributin.
Oanyway, am gardenin for the first time in a long while. The gardening was taken over by another and noo she has decided it isnae her job. I waited, because am a patient person, but she seems adamant and the grass is noo nearly a foot tall, thais bloody spiky, wannabwee thistles, are aboot a fit and a hauf.
Am having tae use a grass whip and i have stopped for a few minutes BECAUSE wur second plum tree, the one that sits atop my wee dugs grave, has fruit, for the furst time; tiny wee plums and gorgeous beyond description....am thinkin there's a word for that but ay cannae mind what it is.
The plum trees were a gift from the eldest son and are not appreciated by all of the residents.

PS the squirrels wull probably eat them, same as they did tae the furst crop of the golden ones.

On Saving Seeds:
Those posts aboot saving seeds recalled my own attempts at growing from scratch. At the close of summer, a few years back, we had saved enough seeds to start us off for the following year. Our seeds were wrapped in paper towel, not sure if it was advanced tae the level of non contaminants which Fey has mentioned, but it was, at least, un-used.
The following year, possibly in the early part of March, my noble experiment began. We buy our eggs by the flat and were assured that the eggs cartons were just the ticket for seeds to start sprouting. Also bought a zillion of those wee bio-degradable, peat moss starter pots. Black earth and organic manure were to be used as the womb.
My basement is dry and wooden skid was brought in to keep all of my tiny planters off the flair. Peat moss pots and egg containers were filled with a mixture of soil and manure; seeds were added and water, not too cold, was sprinkled, lovingly, on our future crop(s).
A week or so later I needed to make a few adjustments. Some of thais stupid wee peat moss pots would separate at the bottom; this because of the watering. Nae worries because wee still had hauf a zillion, someplace. Eureka....mind ay didnae find them mahsel.
My next batch were placed on a plank. The plank was five feet long, ten inches across and three quarters of an inch, thick. Kept all of my planters tight the gither soas they wid support each other; weel ye ken fine that ye cannae stop the water supply.
By the end of March, mibee early April, am carrying my plank ootside oan a daily basis; wur still getting cold nights so am being awfy careful. Many, but no aw, of the planters are displaying GREENERY, so wur being successful.
Am oan line and I am keeping an eye oan the weather. Forecast says clear, dry, nae wind and a low of forty; am gonnae be leaving the wee darlings oot for the entire night. Am telt: that's a mess, doon thair, ay hope ye are gonnae be picking stuff up and putting things away....ay right....."oh yes dearest, whatever yur wee hert desires".
Am oot the door and dae a last scrutiny of the chosen spot, my very ain garden of Eden....Capitol "E" in case a naked lady should wander by. Back tae get my plank and I pick it up, go tae turn towards the steps and step oan something, fall backwards and witness my plank free fall. Said a few, oh dears, had a cup of tea, smoked a few ciggies and an hour later returned to the basement to survey a heartbreaking scene.
"Right", ay says, and started the rescue. I turned another section of the garden and planted all that I could. Wasn't sure what was what but there were a few, tomatoes, green pepers, sunflowers, peas (which hadn't broken the surface) carrots, green onions, pumkins and etc. What i cuidnae pick up was relegated tae the composter.
A good number of those in the garden, did grow. The composter could have kept the neighbourhood in tomatoes and green peppers for a long time.

PS Went tae Canadian Tire and bought starter plants.
