Start seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last expected frost date for your area. Remember that you are planting the seed, not burying it. Tomato seeds should not be planted more than 1/8" deep. If your soil is heavy, it is better to go a little lighter on covering the seeds as you can always add to the pot as they germinate. Plant outdoors after all dangers of frost have passed, and soil has warmed up. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart. Plants can be staked or caged for support if needed. Harvest the fruit when it is fully developed and the proper color for the variety. Planting Marigolds or Calendula with your tomatoes will help naturally deter some pests. The paper packets have basic growing instructions on the back. We grow, harvest and handle all of our seeds ourselves.
