When you put them into the cups, bury the stem all the way to the base of the leaves.
I repotted one today into a plastic cup and there are no visible roots that have penetrated the peat pods?

OK, I will and I guess I start them outside in dappled sunlight for 3 or 4 hours everyday for a week, then direct sunlight? I guess I just focus on how the plant appears when it’s outside in the sun?

Yes, if the plants start looking droopy, move them back into the shade to let them recover.

I've been shopping today and it looks like tomato starts are about $5 each for the 3 inch pot and one store had tomato plants for $17 in the gallon and a half size.


It is well worth starting your own tomato plants. It's not that much bother, a big $ savings, and you can get varieties that aren't sold as starts.
