This Guy Takes 4 Slices Of Fresh Tomatoes and Places It In Compost. 10 Days Later? WOW!

By on Mar 21, 2016

Being a tomato lover, I look forward to “homegrowns” in the summertime.  It is a simple pleasure that makes salads tastier, or I just like slicing one up with a little bit of salt, for a healthy delicious snack.  I have bought tomato plants and grown them outdoors, but until I watched this great video below, I had no idea that I could grow them with greater ease and less expense.

The tomato growing tip offered by the YouTube channel, The Wannabe Homesteader, is an internet find that I had to share.  You will see why it received over 460,000 views, and hundreds of comments, from people who just couldn’t get over this technique and were grateful for this easy tip.

There is nothing worse than cutting into a tomato that turns out to be overripe and inedible.  It always kills me when I have to throw one out, but now I know that it can be used  to cultivate seedlings, that will mature into my very own tomato plants.  The process is so simple, as you will see watching this guy, (who has a really relaxing voice), take you through the steps.

All you will need is: a plastic plant pot, some good rich potting soil, and your overripe tomato cut into slices.  He will show you exactly what to do, (which literally takes a few minutes), and within ten to fourteen days about 50-60 seedlings will have sprouted.  With a minimal amount of effort you will be picking your very own homegrown tomatoes before you know it!
