10/15/13 saving tomato seeds, walnuts, Day 288/ 365…

We are going to try saving some seeds from our tomato plants this year. The plants are heirloom so the plants that sprout next year should be the same as the parent plant that we got the seeds from. This will be our first time saving seeds.
A few years ago we collected walnuts from a few trees in the area. When they fall off of the tree they have an inedible coating that is about one fourth to one half inch thick . We got directions on YouTube on how to get the covering and the shells off to get to the meat of the walnut. We started with about 30 plastic grocery bags of walnuts. There are so many walnuts in our area that is seemed like such a shame to have them go to waste. We ended up with about two inches of walnut meat in a gallon sized Ziploc bag. I don’t think that we will ever do that again, but I am saving some mesh bags to dry the walnuts in case we change our minds. If you do try this, I would suggest wearing two pairs of rubber gloves. We had a good time taking the outside covering off of the walnuts and later taking the hammer to the shells to get the walnut meat released. Now we understand why walnuts are so expensive.
