Are you planning on saving any seeds?

I need to start saving some of mine now. I always think I'll get to it later, after the initial rush and excitement of having homegrown heirlooms to eat has passed, but I usually botch it somehow and end up ordering more for next year. I start fermenting plenty of them, then forget to finish the job.
I only grew a few this year, so I really don't have a good excuse to not get it done.

|I have never fermented my seeds, and had success in germination.|

|@chelle I forgot to save seeds for this one. I am trying other new varieties this year, and sticking to some other old favorites. I have to limit my tomatoes to pots this year, as I have done tomatoes for the past five years and have no more new spaces to rotate them to, except a new hugel bed where I will be growing Kellog's Breakfast I got from the Whitinger seed company. My onions, squash, lettuce, and malabar spinach will go here as well.|
I may also empty half of my compost, and mix in some top soil and plant some tomatoes and squash in those as well.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.

|I actually did get all of mine done, dried and put away...for once. |
I don't rotate mine more than 15 feet or so; my veggie patch is just 30x30. I won't put plants with toxic leaves in the overflow patch, which is larger, because the horse is but a few strands of thin wire away...
I think the compost pile will grow your extras just fine.
