Midway through tomato seed-saving

Tomato seed-saving

When I place them out in the heat of the porch, it doesn't take long for tomato seeds to begin to mold...and that's a good thing! I'll wait until the film of fungus is a bit more intense than is shown in the photo on the right, then I'll swish the seeds apart from their gelatinous casing. A few days drying on a plate and the seeds will be ready to be packed away for next year's garden.

I'm curious why is the fungi film o the seeds beneficial for them. Just some keywords so I could google for more.

Good luck with packing and moving
