I have 2-each of six different heirloom tomatoes, all spaced fairly close together . . so it sounds like i cant successfully save the seed? How far apart are we talking?

The book "Seed to Seed" references the exact numbers. They would be something like 6 to 10 feet apart for tomatoes, but for safety's sake I'd give them 25 feet.
