You don't need to pay for new tomato seeds each year. Save the seeds from your best tomatoes for next year's crop.

I hear that in some parts of the country, gardeners are harvesting tomatoes already. Not here in the Northeast where we're ready to build an ark, but tomatoes are out there. I'm thinking about saving some of my seeds this year, but I've never done it before. I thought I'd start small and just save tomato seeds. If I'm successful, perhaps next year I'll save other seeds.
Being a visual learner, I went to YouTube to find a simple, straightforward video on saving tomato seeds. This video from Gardenyears fits the bill. I'll probably do a little reading on how to save seeds, also, but it always helps me to see it done first.
