need some help with tomato seed saving

Hello Everyone. My name is Will.
I have successfully saved Henderson Winsall, Dixie Golden Giant, and Tennessee Spears Green seeds so far.
Now I have Caspian Pink and Black Cherry Tomato seeds in two bowls with 1/2 pulp half water. My problem is the solution evaporated on me and the Caspian Pink Seeds are stuck to the dish. The seeds hadn't had a chance to mold yet...So I added a little more water and taking my fingers I got the seeds to break free. It's only been two days so far. Did I damage the seeds or cause them to rot by having them in water for an extra amount of time.

Any advice would be great.
Thanks again.

Re: need some help with tomato seed saving

no need to panic, I have that happen when it is really hot and did just what you describe. Just finish the process and save the seeds. It is possible that you injured a couple of the seeds, but you will have plenty. If in doubt plant extras in the spring and give the extra plants to friends and family.

CharlieBear,
Thanks for the heads-up. I was getting a little worried.
