Growing Tomato Slices


Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 239 Posts

Growing Tomato SlicesI 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. Growing Tomato Slices

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:-)

Last fall I sat a large pumpkin down beside my compost bin, left it all winter, and this spring it had pretty well decayed. I lifted the stem, and when the pumpkin came apart, there were dozens of seeds on the ground, some had sprouted.
