Homegrown heirloom tomatoes are just the best!  A friend of mine grows the most amazing heirloom tomatoes in her garden and she gave me a few to harvest seeds from.  Her suggestion was to re-sprout the overripe tomato in my garden.  So that’s what I did.  Now I will have her heirloom tomato plants in my garden as well! Thanks Barb!


  • 1 over ripe tomato
  • Potting soil
  • Pot

Start by filling a pot with potting soil about ¾ the way up.

Slice the tomatoes about 1 inch thick.

Lay them in the pot and cover the tomatoes with more potting soil.

Water the plants and place in a spot that receives a good amount of sun.  Once they have sprouted, you can transfer them into the garden and watch your new tomatoes grow!
