Seed saving from squirrel-munched tomatoes?

14 years ago

Maybe this is obvious, or has been discussed before, but...

Books that talk about seed saving say, "take your best, ripest tomato and... squeeze all the seeds into a jar". I'm thinking, that's the tomato I want to EAT! But what about if your best, ripest tomato one morning has a bite taken out of it by an evil squirrel (or other critter)? Isn't that a great candidate for seed saving? Or should I not save seed that has squirrel saliva in it? (eeww)

I want to save seeds for next year but I'm afraid my yield will be so low that I won't want to sacrifice any "good ones".
