San Marzano is my favorite variety of plum tomato. Super yummy. Unfortunately, I usually can’t find them in the garden center. So the last couple of years, I’ve been growing them from seed. If you’ve never grown veggies from seed, it’s super easy. Fun for kids too!
I use these little peat pellets along with a mini plastic greenhouse by Jiffy that I bought at Home Depot a few years ago. They work great for starting seeds and you can use them year after year, you just need to purchase extra peat pellets when you run out. The package comes with clear, easy to follow instructions.
Once you’ve planted your seeds, place your greenhouse in a warm location away from direct sunlight and wait a couple of days for nature to work its magic.
It’s still amazing to me how such a tiny dried out seed can end up producing so much goodness. I can almost taste those sun ripened summer tomatoes.
What’s your favorite variety of summer fruit or vegetable?
