i actually saved seeds from last year hun and thou toms - fermented them, then left them on kitchen roll to dry, left the kitchen roll on the side and my mom binned it - but i managed to notice and salvage some of the seed, i rapped the remaining seeds in some more kitchen towel - left them on the side and they disapeared! - i was not a happy bunny - this year im buying a safe!

Not wise to wrap in kitchen roll , they stick to it . I put mine on a saucer then when dry they can be picked off easily .......S*d the housework I have a lottie to dig
Isn't it about time someone kicked that jetstream into touch?

Anyway - my toms are starting to go out now - I counted the other day and have over 40 different varieties. I'll save from the best tasting and best growing for the circle. I have already put 4 out, 3 under a cloche and they are doing well so now's the time to start getting them in the ground.

Hi. Can I play too?
Got a few heirloom plants on the go and some other interesting toms too.
At the moment I'm hoping to be able to save from White Wax, Hahnstown Yellow, Kibits Ukraine, and depending if they come true Moruno (saved from Tesco finest). I've got about 20 varieties in total (some F1's) so could offer more if these are a problem.
Are there some seed circle rules somewhere, apart from 120+ seeds by 1st Dec?

Paulieb, the number of seeds is directly proportionate to the number of people left in the circle at the end of November. As a rule, we look for a minimum of 8 seeds per variety per person, and if everyone stays in this year, thats almost 200 seeds per variety, so far

But if the seed numbers are down - and the participants are up then even one or two seeds each is better than none.
