Tomatoes are the easiest plants to grow. They grow very fast and You don’t have to worry about pollination!! 😀 🙂 Your Tomatoes are ready in just 3 months!! So let’s start.. 🙂
Take a pot that is longer and wider in shape.
Fill the pot with mud
Add little water to make the soil moist
Now spread the tomato seeds on the soil. Please don’t press or dig them into the soil.. Sowing methods are different for different seeds.. The easiest one is to scatter/spread them on the soil. This is how the seeds look…
Now sprinkle some water on the seeds
Keep sprinkling water 2-3 times a day for next one week. Also (if possible) do not place the pot in direct sunlight.
The seeds take around 4-7 days to germinate.
The fun begins now!!
After the saplings have grown 7-10 inches its time to separate them and replant them in bigger pots/containers.
Fill these pots with soil and compost. Plant the saplings minimum six inches below the surface. Now this is the crux. If you plant the sapling just 3-4 inches beneath the surface you’re going face a lot of problems later on.
The tomato stems tend to develop roots on them. So the roots keep growing along the stem and if you have planted the sapling just three inches under the soil.. The plant is going to tilt & bend and it will need a lot of support.
So the only highlight point of this post is plant the saplings minimum 6 inches under the surface!!!
And then all you got to do is wait and watch. Water them regularly. Keep adding compost once in 15-20 days. And in just three months you’ll have your tomatoes!! No more buying tomatoes from market 🙂
That reminds me, we all have different consumption rates when it comes to tomatoes but a general norm says you need to have 3 plants per family member in order to not buy any tomatoes from the market!
