Wintersowing tomato seeds, part 1

Wintersowing is a method of propagation in which a person plants seeds in recycled plastic drink  containers (I use 2 liter coke bottles), keeps the soil moist and located away from direct sunlight - and when it's time, Mother nature will germinate the seeds for you. It's really simple. Just cut the bottle in half, make some drainage holes in the bottom. Fill that with soil, plant your seeds, slide the top half of the bottle over the bottom half, and add water weekly.

Leave cap off unless frost is expected, and bring indoors If temperatures get below freezing. Here's a couple of containers prepared a few weeks ago.
