Slice The Tomato
When our nurseries were all closed and it seemed impossible to get tomato plants I decided to try a trick that my friend in England uses and I put some slices of tomato in a window box and put a bit of soil on top. It took longer than I expected but this is how they looked a few days ago. The 3 bunches on the right are from a large tomato of some kind and the smaller ones are from grape tomatoes with a few basil seedlings coming up on the left. I'm going to separate them this week even though it is quite late and will see what happens. I have since purchased larger tomatoes at a nursery after lining up for quite a while but there is still a shortage of basil plants here.
