How to grow your own tomatoes 1 Choose an easy-to-grow variety, such as cherry tomatoes. Seeds are cheap and can be found online or at home and garden stores. 2 Find a large container. A plastic 5-gallon (18.9 L) bucket works great if you add drainage holes. 3 Fill about ¾ of the bucket with soil. Poke ¼-inch-deep holes with your finger and put 3–4 seeds into each hole. Thin them out as they grow. 4 Water the soil often enough to keep it evenly moist, and make sure the bucket is getting at least 6 hours of sunlight and warmth per day. Tip: It’s best to grow tomatoes in a sunny spot outside or indoors in front of a big window. 5 Prop up the plants as needed. The tomatoes should be ready in two to three months. Enjoy them in salads, on homemade pizza, or as is!
