Thinking about getting rid of your over-ripe tomatoes?
You can use your over-ripe tomatoes to grow a fresh batch in no time.
In a new video by the Wannabe Homesteader you can learn how to grown your own tomatoes and the best thing about it is that you only need some soil, a pot, and a tomato!
You will need to slice your tomato into ¼ inch thick slices and throw 4 slices in your pot with compost in it.
Afterwards, throw some soil over the slices until they are almost barely visible.
Make sure that you water it in irregular intervals.

You should do this for 1-2 weeks until you have some 50 tomato seedlings.
When you have enough large seedlings plant them into other pots (2 per pot).
This is a very easy and simple to follow process and it is amazingly affordable, considering that most of us throw a lot of food either way.
About 30-40% of the farmed produce in the US is thrown away or left to rot each year, according to Yale Environment, which amounts somewhere around to 130 billion pounds of food per year.
Well, now you have a better idea of what to do with your over-ripe tomatoes.
Instead of throwing them away, use them to grow yourself a new batch!
