Start your tomato seeds indoors by a sunny window 6-8 weeks before last frost. tomatoes need warm 75-80 degrees to germinate. keep moist, seeds should germinate in about 2 weeks. transplant outside when temperatures stay above 50 degrees. plant your entire tomato stem in the soil except for the top 3 inches. the stem will grow extra roots to help absorb water. make sure you use something with calcium in the soil such as crushed lime to ward off end rot.
