There are lots of seeds still in their little damp paper towels getting sprouted. Yesterday I took the varieties that have sprouted and moved them into their little seedling pots.
I saved egg shells to use for this, we will see how well that works. We have a lot of calcium in our water, but places that don't might find this technnique useful to help prevent Blossom End Rot.
There are several previous posts about how to start tomato plants from seed. Click here to go to the first one, and when you get there, you'll see links to the others. :-)
We had thunder storms night before last, and this is a part of the country where the saying applies: "Thunder in February, Frost in April"! I never plant before Easter because of late frosts, but I always start a lot of extra plants in case my first planting freezes to death!

With Mr Trump's willingness to enforce the laws Congress has already passed, and his leadership to back us up, WE AMERICANS can begin rebuilding the country we all love, with our own hands, our own money, our own ideas, our own dreams, and our own determination.

On this President's Day of an election year, as everyone calls for "a Godly leader", we need to remember King Cyrus, who GOD anointed to rebuild the temple and free God's people, even though Cyrus did not know God. Cyrus was a BUILDER.
We also need to remember that a leader who follows God does not necessarily follow our own church's doctrine. With that, we need to remember President Jimmy Carter: Deacon and Sunday School teacher, devout Southern Baptist to whom no scandal has attached... but did he have God's annointing to lead our nation? We each must pray and be open to the Lord's guidance.
We need a builder who does not need the "pay" of the office.
"I will stir up Cyrus and help him win his battles.
I will make all his roads straight.
He will rebuild Jerusalem.
My people have been taken away from their country.
But he will set them free.
I will not pay him to do it.
He will not receive a reward for it,”
says the Lord who rules over all. "
