Tomato and Squash Seeds

Hello everyone! Fall is getting close and you know what that means. Time to start saving seeds!❤ This is how I save tomato seeds. First, I squeeze out all the seeds.

I rinse them in a strainer to get out most of the yuck. Put them in a jar with water. Let sit 5 days.

After 5 days the water is looking yucky. The seeds are ready to strain again.

After straining I put them on a paper plate to dry. This takes at least a week, maybe more. I make sure they are really dry before I put them away.

I also saved some squash seeds this morning. I let the squash stay on the vine until the outside is hard and a dark yellow color. Then open them up, scoop out the seeds and let them dry.

This is my drying table so far. This table is a multi function table. I use it when canning, drying seeds etc. I got this table with S & H Green Stamps. Those of you who remember them know how long ago that was.

I hope you all have a great day. God bless.
