You need two pots to grow tomatoes, take a small pot (6 inches) and fill it with soil and water and plant the seeds deep in the soil, the soil should be moist but not soggy. Tomatoes require a lot of sunlight, so make sure that you place the pot in a place which receives an ample amount of sunlight, the seeds will germinate in about 10 days, when the seedlings are 3 inches long, transfer them to another pot which is filled with potting soil, keep the soil moist and water the plant nicely, about after a week add an organic fertilizer, as the plant grows it becomes heavy, so make sure that you provide some sort of support to the plant so the stem doesn’t break, when the tomatoes turn red and firm, they are ready.

Take a little soil free of rocks (or a pot) which is deep enough to handle this root vegetable, and plant the seeds deep in the potting soil. Rocky soil can result in carrots which are curvy and bent that, while perfectly edible are not the most visually pleasing.

The carrots are ready for harvest when their tops breach the soil line.
