I’ve never tried to grow anything from seed inside until now. Although conventional wisdom says one should use extra lights for growing seeds indoors, a friend told me he was having luck with his tomato seeds in cups in his window sill.
So, a week ago, I sowed seeds of Yellow Granex onions, Beefsteak tomato, Cherokee Purple tomato, Aunt Ruby’s German Green tomato, and Sugar Sweetie cherry tomato into little paper cups. I placed them in my sunniest window sills and covered them loosely w/plastic wrap, then spritzed them with the water bottle—the same one I squirt the cat with when she misbehaves--once or twice a day. They’re now all sprouting little half-inch seedlings. It’s so exciting! Really, it is.
