Video: Seed Saving

Peas

  1. Pick pods when they're dry, brown, and papery
  2. Leave pea pods somewhere warm to continue drying out for a few days
  3. Shell your pea seeds into a small jar or seed packet

Nasturtiums

  1. Pick nasturtium seeds off the plant while they're still green
  2. Spread seeds on a paper towel and let them dry out for a few weeks. They should shrivel and turn brown.
  3. Store in a small jar or seed packet

Tomatoes

  1. Cut up your tomato and scoop the seeds into a jar
  2. Put an inch or two of water in the jar and place somewhere warm for a few days
  3. After 3-4 days, the tomato seeds will be looking a little funky, which is a good thing! Pour them through a strainer and rinse well.
  4. Spread your seeds in a single layer on a plate and let them dry out completely.
  5. Store in a small jar or seed packet
