A Man Puts 4 Tomato Slices In A Bucket of Dirt. Watch What Happens Just A Week Later!

Would you like to learn a little urban agriculture? If so, we can certainly help. Let’s start with tomatoes.

You don’t have to be an avid gardner to love this tip. Here’s a quick and easy way for how to grow tomatoes using the overripe ones you may have in your fridge!

The Wannabe Homesteader demonstrates what to do. He takes an overripe tomato and a pot with some soil (he uses compost potting soil).

First, he slices the tomato into quarter-inch thick slices. He then throws four pieces into the pot and covers them over with a sprinkle of dirt, just enough so they are covered.

Water them every once and a while and within a week-and-a-half you should have a pot filled with 50 or 60 sprouting seedlings! At this stage, the gardner suggests transplanting the bigger, stronger seedlings into other pots (2 per pot) to let them grow. That’s it!

Home-grown tomatoes are pretty easy, and very often they’ll taste better than the store-bought variety. The only downside is that a really good tomato plant will yield more than you’re willing to eat, and if you don’t have a good idea for what to do with the surplus you might find yourself feeling guilty about throwing away perfectly good tomatoes.

Anyway, here’s the video. Watch enough of these, and you’ll have enough skill to get a nice Obama garden started and save on your grocery bill!
