Seed Preservation in gardening

Any tips on how to preserve my seeds from a good harvest for next year? Right now, I'm just air drying them and putting them in envelopes or ziploc bags. Some of the peas sprouted and some shriveled up- which should I use next year?



Anyone ever tried to grow a fruit tree from the seed? A friend has a very old Barlett pear tree and the branches are getting hollow, more and more are breaking each year. They've tried just planting the stars (or pits) but never got any seedlings to come up. I tried soaking some apple seeds from the orchard last fall and got some to sprout but as soon as I planted them in some dirt, they died.

I am preserving seeds from organic veggies we eat this season in the hopes of growing them next year when I get my home garden up and running. I wish I had great advice, but am a beginner at this. Here is a link that has some great information on saving seeds
