I agree with tom and practice, practice, practice until you go blue.

No good having 50 kinds of seeds that you are keeping for that crisis and don't know how to do it. It can be very hit and miss, even for an experienced gardener who moves from one region to another. It happened to me and it can take years of experimenting with soil builders and fertilisers, battling with weeds and insect pests, to get a healthy plot going.

Start now before you need it and harvest your seeds from what you produce, that way you know that soil can produce if given the right care even if they are not heirloom varieties, desperate people don't care about what variety of tomato is fruiting.

When I LIKE a post, it does not always mean I agree, it can also just mean I think a valid point has been made.
