Answer: You can start your tomatoes indoors in March to be transplanted out early (late April) and get an early harvest. Place two seeds per pot in the potting mix you purchased and keep it moist. After about one week, you'll see the new plants emerge. Put the pots under fluorescent lights keeping the lights within a few inches of the plants. Keep the plants well watered and fertilized weekly with a liquid plant food. Once the plant's height is three times the diameter of the pot, repot into a pot one size larger. After 6 weeks growing indoors, place the plants outside in a cold frame or under a floating row cover to keep them warm for the first month. By the end of May they should be fine to grow on their own.
