Stephen Covey advises us to begin with the end in mind. So, being a Covey fan, and actually living by that goal-setting-mentality way, way, before I read The 7 habits — my goal was to propagate my own seeds for next year.
I have been finding some cool links on the Internet on seed collecting techniques lately, and that is really what made me create this blog. I cant tell you how many tomato seeds that I planted over the years that didnt grow . Then I found this link on You Grow Girl that told of how the tomato seeds have a protective barrier naturally that prevents germination. Well, this was priceless.
You have to let them ferment and get a bit moldy to break that barrier and then dry the seeds to plant next year. So, someday if you walk onto my patio and smell a bowl full of foul smelling, rotting moldy tomatos you will know what I am up to!
