We all love tomatoes, but we often forget them in the fridge until they’re overripe and rotten. But, instead of throwing them away in the trash, you can use these overripe tomatoes to grow a new supply which will give you great, organic tomatoes you can eat every day.
Take a look at the video below for more information:
As you can see, all you have to do is cut a few tomato slices, fill a pot with soil and put them in – it’s that simple. First, you’ll need 4 tomato slices – make sure they’re thick so the seeds are intact. Put them in the pot with soil and cover them with another thin layer in order to help them sprout. After 2 weeks and regular watering, seedlings should begin emerging from the soil. Take the strongest looking ones and plant them in another pot, then wait for them to grow and leave a couple of the best ones. Continue watering and caring for your tomatoes until they produce proper vegetables.
