How to Start Heirloom Tomatoes From Seeds

I like to grow heirloom tomato varieties, they just seem to have so much more flavor. And start the plants from seeds and watch the miracle of life develop.
Since our weather conditions are very unique I like to buy the seeds locally because plants have to adjust to the climate they are in.
Here is a little wordless video how to start tomatoes from seeds. What containers to use and how to label.
Once the little plants germinate and grow taller than the container, I gently cut off the lower leaves
Fill the pot with potting soil to the top and water the plant. This way I safe myself some transplanting work and also some transplanting stress for the plant. A win win!
In a few more weeks the heirloom tomato plants are ready to go into the ground or their final pot.
