In just two minutes, this farmer will show you his simple way to grow tomatoes. And it is rather mindblowing. Well, mindblowing enough that it has the internet bewildered (and impressed). All that is needed is some dirt, a pot and tomatoes. He instructs his viewers to start by cutting overly ripe tomatoes into quarter sections. Next, you drop them into a bucket of dirt. He terms his tactics as “almost too simple,” and he’s definitely right.
He says you should use composted, cow-manure potting soil.
Next, he covers the tomatoes in dirt where they are “barely covered” and recommends you water them every now and then. If you follow the instructions, you should end up with at least 50 seedlings.
Has anyone ever tried this?
