The tomato plant is placed into a larger pot about one gallon size. This pot will be placed in the greenhouse, if it ever warms up, until ready to place in the garden about the 24 of May.

A coffee filter is placed in the bottom of the pot to preven earth from spilling out the drain holes, and a plastic bag is place around the outside of the pot to prevent water seepage, whilest kept inside the house.The first leaves are cut off, and the plant is placed in a paper bag to keep the roots contained, so the roots are not disturbed, and the tomato plants is covered with earth to slightly above the first leaves. Roots will form from the buried stem.
