BABY! ----Well, they say you can know so much about a gardener by how they grow tomatoes. I start mine on onion skin paper and paper towels sandwiched between dinner plates. I pencil at least a dozen quadrants on paper and put different tomato type seeds down for germination upon soaking plate. Once germinated (around 5-7 days) i carefully place each baby into slots in starter 6 packs ( one inch ers) then throw under lights for two weeks. This year i have 51 varieties, only about six red, the rest crazy ass!
