Growing tomatoes

Now that tomato season has officially ended (in Tassie), it’s time to start thinking about growing tomatoes for next year! This is what our next door neighbour Mary’s mum use to do. She scooped the seeds out of her favourite tomato (ours is the Ailsa Craig), dried them out on a paper towel, then cut them into small strips. She put the strips in pots and placed the pots somewhere warm so the seeds would propagate – and then by Spring, she was ready to plant her tomato seedlings.
