HI, fraid I don't know any such sites, but can tell you the following if it helps you out any;- I save tomato and sweet/hot pepper seeds to plant the next year. From peppers I merely cut the seed out as you would normally, let it dry, then store in an eggcup somewhere dry (a paper envelope is a good alternative!). Same thing for the tomato plants, just save the seed and let it dry out naturally before storing. Can't see why the same technique wouldn't work for other vegetables. Just beware of diseased plants though and don't save their seeds, you wouldn't want to risk propagating the disease as well would you?

I've had peach, tomato, pepper and melon seeds sprouting from compost before even when I don't save them!
