Tomato Seedling Bed

In my last tomato entry, I had little seeds placed in my used yogurt cups.  For germination purposes I put in potting soil and a zip locked plastic bag over the cup.  Then I watered those and left them in the backyard.  About a week and a half later, my little seedlings were ready to be transplanted into their new bed.

The pictures above show the backyard, the new seedling bed filled with potting soil, and cups full of eager seedlings. 

The ones below show the tomato seedlings two days after transplanting.  Now, did I transplant them correctly?  I'm not sure.  When I first moved them, they were all lying down.  At least now, a couple of them are upright again.  Will they live and thrive and grow big red tomatoes?  Only time will tell.

Anyone here with tips on raising tomatoes???  Please let me know.


  1. Great idea! I've also planted seeds directly in the garden and then taken clear water bottles and cut off the bottoms and placed these over the seed. Instant greenhouse.

  2. Hey that's not a bad idea. I better start stealing the used juice bottles too.


No spamming please. ;-)
