    I'd like to join too.
    I don't think my plants will count this year as limited to:-
    Ailsa craig
    Ananas
    Tigerella
    Black cherry
    Ildi
    All run of the mill but next year some old varieties.
    May find some I'll be interested in to try.

    Now these tomato things. What should I save seeds from?

    German red strawberry
    Indian moon
    indigo apple
    buffalo horn
    tumbling Tom red
    Black Russian
    brown sugar
    black + brown boar
    dark Galaxy

    I think I've removed all the F1 from my list!
    If you professional seed savers could let me know if any of these will cross. I know some toms do, but I don't know which ones

    I was thinking one of the top 4 for the circle but I'm going to have a go at saving all of them.
