Talkback: How to save tomato seed

I've been saving tomato seed [non-F1] for years. Instead of any ritual just smear seeds on to a piece of tissue and leave to dry for a day or two. Write down the variety and put away till next year if too late for this. Tomato seeds are so tough that after throwing old fruit on the compost heap new plants will sometimes appear in late spring.
