Heirloom Seed Kit (Gardening’s Not as Easy as it Looks!)

Heirloom Seed Kit | Tiffany Lane

A friend gave me an heirloom seed kit recently and even with my black thumb, I’ve been able to keep the cherry tomato plant alive! The kit comes with seeds, soil, paper pots, wooden crate and instructions for growing the seedlings.

Step 3: once the seedlings have sprouted, remove plastic wrap and continue to water

Destruction leaves only one survivor (WHAT NOT TO DO: accidentally leave the pot directly underneath the edge of your roof overhang during a rain storm…oops)

Step 4: transplant any surviving seedlings into a larger pot with new soil (keeping seedlings in paper pot, which will biodegrade into the soil)

Step 5: water and let it grow!

Now it’s just a waiting game until it starts to fruit. I cannot wait to try my homegrown cherry tomatoes!
