Don’t think that since you don’t have a greenhouse or that you aren’t a horticultural expert that you can’t grow tomatoes from seed. You just need to pay attention to a few small details to grow plants that will rival anything you can get from your local greenhouse.
I like to take advantage of the fact that tomatoes will grow roots from any part of the stem that is underground.
If you plant your plants as deeply as possible each time you transplant they will grow new roots, so I like to start them 10 weeks before the last frost rather than the recommended 6 to 8 weeks.
Planting earlier gives me the opportunity to transplant them a couple of times before I move them to the garden.
You may have to buy your seeds this year, but consider saving tomato seeds from your best tomatoes for next year.
In theory at least you should plant your seeds in a starting mix, but I have just as good of success by using ordinary potting soil.
You should plant your seeds 1/4 inch deep. Other than that they just need to be in a shaded location and kept damp until they germinate. Once they sprout move them into a sunny location.
Transplanting your tomatoes to bigger pots whenever they get tall enough to bury more of the stem will force them to grow a stronger root system. Simply cut off the bottom few branches and plant them right up to the remaining forage.

Hardening your tomatoes off is the final step you need to take before finally transplanting them to the garden. Spend a week or so slowly introducing them to the elements by bringing them outside starting with just an hour or so. Once they are OK spending 24 hours outside it is safe to transplant them.
Even if you don’t have a green thumb you can grow tomatoes from seed. As long as they aren’t left out in the frost they will survive most anything.
If you don’t have a garden you can still grow tomatoes in pots and get a nice crop, in fact you can even grow upside down tomatoes and hang them above your deck or balcony.

Tarahumara Chia (Salvia tiliafolia), also known as Lindenleaf Sage, produces an edible seed that swells up when in water, producing a gel. The Chia seeds that most people get at health food and survivalist type stores likely come from Salvia hispanica. The two plants (S. hispanica and S. tiliifolia) are related and both produce an edible seed that creates a gel when added to water.
