Growing Tomato Slices

I don't mean you can get ready sliced tomatoes off a plant :0) that would be silly. However, rather than pay for an expensive pack of seeds, or go to the trouble of picking seeds out of a tomato and drying them, you can actually plant slices of tomatoes. It's so easy to do. Simply lay them out, cover with compost and keep them watered.

Thanks for this tip! It's so easy and obvious if you think about it, but I didn't. :)

I never thought of doing this, but what a great idea, and talk about Thrifty!! I did know that sometimes if a tomato falls to the ground, the next Spring you will see tomato plants. Same thing with cucumbers. I had about 4 "volunteer" cucumber plants this year.

I like your choice of words, "volunteer" plants. Now I know what to call those. Cool. Thank you :-)

The volunteer plants also end up being the healthiest because they've been exposed to all the elements and best of all - THEY ARE FREE:-)
