Can I use seeds from last years vegetables. That is if I have seeds from tomatos that I grew last year, can I plant them this year? Will they grow? Will they be just as good as last years?

If you kept seeds from your tomatoes they will grow but the fruits may not be exactly the same as the tomatoes in your garden last year. Tomatoes cross pollinate so the seeds from the fruits will have a slightly different genetic make up. But they should still be tasty. Enjoy!
