Seed Saving

A friend had given me a yellow cherry tomato plant this spring which bore such sweet, delicious fruits that it prompted me to try saving some of its seeds.  I am pretty sure it is not a hybrid ( a plant that does not produce true to its nature year after year) since the plant came from an organic farm, so I'm hoping I'll be able to start some plants from these seeds next spring and enjoy some more of its yummy, healthful treats.

One of my long-term goals is to grow only heirloom varieties of plants so that I can save my own seeds from year to year, thus cutting the expense of purchasing seeds.  So, this is a good way to start!
