You can sow your seeds outdoors in containers. Those seeds that sprout, and there will be many, will be hardy plants that produce well. I did this last year, and am doing it again this year. I used ziplock bags, but you can use any vented container.


Here are the steps:

  1. Make sure your container has vents. Poke holes in the bottom, or leave part of the bag open, as I did.
  2. Label the container with a waterproof pen.

  3. Fill the container with potting soil.

  4. Put the seeds in and moisten.

  5. Put all the containers outside.
  6. Check periodically to make sure the plants are sufficiently moistened and are getting enough air.

I will be posting again in the spring with Part 2.

If you are lucky, your seeds have germinated in the bag. All you have to do now is to plant in your garden at the appropriate time (take out of the bag, of course). This is a Million Dollar tomato plant. I use the Square Foot Gardening method, which allots one square per plant. In my zone the proper time to plant is Mother's Day.
