Most all of my plants are grown from seed which was saved from the previous years plants. The majority of saved seeds are mainly from my heirloom tomatoes and peppers but lettuce, onions, and other seeds are saved.I attended a seed saver workshop at the CT NOFA Conference on March 31st of this year to learn more about saving seeds and have researched on the internet for ideas as well.  Sites I visited include:  http://howtosaveseeds.com/index.php,  http://www.douggreensgarden.com/tomato-seed-fermentation.html, and http://yougrowgirl.com/saving-tomato-seeds/. For seeds that I don't save myself or want to order a new type, I've ordered from http://www.totallytomato.com/ and from http://www.rareseeds.com/.    

I only use organic fertilizers on the plants (I use http://www.neptunesharvest.com/ ) and avoid using pesticides (since I don't want to eat anything that has pesticides).  

Every year I jar my tomatoes and the cherry hot peppers (see recipe page), and I vacuum seal and freeze peppers and other vegetables for enjoyment all winter long.
