Tomatoes that you grow are better than tomatoes that you buy. You can grow tomatoes inside if you do not have a garden.
- Tomato seeds
- A big pot (50 cm deep)
- Potting soil (many big food shops sell this)
- A window
Fill the pot with potting soil. Pack the soil down a little bit. Put a seed on top of the soil. Add a bit more soil on top.
Add water. The soil must always be a bit wet. Seeds like to be warm. Put your pot in a warm place. It does not need sun yet.
The plant will grow above the soil. Put the plant by a window. The plant needs four hours of sun a day. You can tie the stem to a stick to help the plant stay up. Always keep the soil a bit wet.
Pick the tomatoes when they are the same red colour top to bottom. Enjoy!
