Need Tomato Advice
I need some advice on what I did wrong saving my tomato seeds from last season.
In early October I collected seeds and gel from the three varieties we grew--San Marzano, Boxcar Willy, and Powers Heirloom (none of these hybrids as far as I know)
I added water to cover to each batch of seed and kept them sufficiently watered and let them sit for a week or so to ferment. Each batch of seed developed a nice scum on top of the water.
I rinsed them and then air dried them, and stored them in paper envelopes in a plastic bag over Winter.
My lettuce seed, which I allowed to mature outside, is sprouting well, but, alas, not so my dear tomatoes.
Since this is my first season saving seed, I'm wondering what I did wrong.
