Sometimes growing tomatoes works out great. Other times it doesnâ€™t. And then there are times when you just want an easyâ€”and relatively quickâ€”way to grow them. Thatâ€™s where this tip from The Wannabe Homesteader comes in. All you need is some compost or potting soil, a pot, and an overripe tomato. Chances are you already have those on hand.
First, cut the tomato into 1/4-inch thick slices. Put the slices into a compost-filled pot. Place potting soil on top of the tomatoes. The potting soil should just barely cover the tomato slices. Water them as needed, and in a week or two 50 to 60 seedlings will sprout. Pull out the bigger seedlings and place them in a separate pot. Two to a pot works best.
Simple, right? Do you have any quick-and-easy gardening tips youâ€™d like to share?
