Finding Heirloom Seeds

Stop by your local farmers market and look at all the produce. See a purple tomato? Maybe a yellow and green striped one? There are so many different kinds. Buy a couple to taste, and dry the seeds for next year's crop.

That's a good idea! Especially since some heirlooms are harder and harder to find.

This is a great idea! It will work with heirlooms. Saving tomato seeds is a bit of a process, but it's easy. There are many websites and books that will take you through it, step by step. Then next year you have lots of delicious, wonderful tomatoes! Thank you for posting it.

Saving seeds from produce you buy at a farmers market may or may not get you the results you want because not all plants grow "true" from their seeds, particularly hybrid types, but it's certainly worth a try. But here's another idea: There are groups of folks on the Internet who gather and swap seeds. I suggest you start with the very valuable and useful website, http://davesgarden.com/

It will cost you nothing to join up and it's a fine site for many things (like, for example, identifying a plant) as well as for swapping cuttings, seeds and plants.
