How do I grow tomatoes from seed?
I start tomatoes indoors for about 6 weeks before setting them into the garden a week or so after final frost here. So I start about April 15, and plant out in early June. I strive for a stocky transplant of about 4 inches high and wide; bigger isn’t necessarily better. (By the way, that’s ‘Juliet,’ up top, a great tomato for sauce.)
