Open Pollinated Seed
We usually just let about 10% of our plants go to seed - if we don't collect the seed before the seed head shatters, they will self-sow, germinating in their proper season next time around. We simply transplant the seedlings to where we want them. It is a lot easier.

We do save seed too. In Southern California, drying seed (and skin and other things out) isn't too difficult and we have great success in storing seed. You are right about onion seed (and carrot) having a short shelf life, but even under less than ideal conditions, tomatoes have seven years or more and we get decent germination consistently on most seed three to four years old even though we don't have the cool storage we would like.
