Tomatoes started!

It's time to start tomato seedlings if you want to grow them from seed.  In my case I have five heirloom varieties. I marked each with toothpicks, also putting a number for each one on the box as well as a certain number of toothpicks in the soil.  See photos.

I am excited to see how they do, as I have never planted my own seeds indoors before planting outdoors, and never heirloom types.

Notice how small the seeds are. These were fairly expensive considering I got maybe 15 or 20 seeds per package.  Next year I will save the seeds from the plants that do the best and have my own seeds hopefully from then on!
