Here is a good link to some basic seed saving information.

Seed saving site

I save seeds using some of the techniques discussed on the site. I also save potatoes by just leaving them in a cool dark place for the winter. They are usually growing by spring, and I plant them with good success.

Also, I live in a temperate rain forest - Southeast Alaska, so I know about planting seeds in cold (cool), wet environments. What I do is never, with the exception of carrots, plant seeds in the ground. I always plant inside and then transplant when the plants are big enough. For some plants that is 8 to 10 weeks, for others it is three weeks prior to planting outside. If the plants have delicate roots, such as cucumbers or squash, i use paper or other pots that I can plant directly in the ground. If you have to plant in the ground, use a floating row cover or something else that protects the plants and raises the temps.

This year I transplanted over 500 plants and all survived. Planting inside also produces a greater germination rate, which allows me to save some seeds for the next year (depending on the seed type).

Good luck.
