Seed saving

This was brought up on Face Book this morning. I've been saving and planting, with success, tomato seeds as well as pepper, squash and flower seeds for long time. This next year we are growing a number of varieties of drying beans. This website explains well how to dry the beans to use for home use. We will reuse some of the beans the following year in the next garden. It is easier to do this when they are heirloom and not hybrid. We've discovered with some hybrid tomatoes that the plants grown the following year produce much smaller tomatoes, almost like a cherry tomato instead of a beefsteak. But, we will continue to do this to save money that can go elsewhere.
