This Man Drops a Bunch Of Tomatoes In a Pot of Soil. A Week and Half Later Awesome.

People have a renewed interest in gardening and many are opting to grow their own fresh food at home. The reason is simple for many, instead of buying the markedly expensive organic products that are pesticide-free from the store, they’re choosing to shop locally and plant fruits, vegetables, and herbs right in their own back yard.

Between the ever increasing cost of food, consumer awareness, and health and safety concerns, it makes sense to plant your own garden. It’s the only way you can be sure and know exactly how the food you’re feeding your family was grown. Equally as important is the fact that the best way to enjoy any fruit or veggie is freshly picked right off the vine!

Even if you don’t have a green thumb or the know-how, there’s still hope! The simple method covered in this video from The Wannabe Homesteader channel on YouTube goes over a novel way to start tomato seedlings. It will cost you nothing and requires zero plant or gardening experience whatsoever.

The two minute clip titled “The Easiest Way To Grow Tomato Seedlings” is not misleading in any way, shape, or form. All you need is a pot full of dirt and a few tomato slices. That’s it! You can simply take old pieces of tomato that you bought at the store, plant them, and re-grow a bunch of tomato plants all over again. The types of tomatoes that work best for this trick are heirloom tomatoes that have been grown organically or ones that you know come from a garden. Here’s what to do:

1) Cut a ripe or over-ripe tomato into ¼ inch thick slices.
2) Place them in the dirt evenly spaced apart.
3) Cover the slices with a thin layer of potting soil.
4) Water regularly as needed.

About a week or so after you plant the slices there will be a bunch of tiny little seedlings that have sprouted up. Take the larger ones and re-plant them in a new pot, you only want a couple in each container. After they’ve grown a bit more take the bigger ones out again and plant them in their own pot. Now you have the sturdiest, strongest tomato plants that will yield the plumpest, juiciest, and most delicious tomatoes you’ve ever tasted!
