Okay we are propagating tomatoes for transplants to put out in the spring. We have put the seeds using my fingers and using the little planter on top of each one of these cells. We have 1 or 2 or 3 seeds. I am going to take my finger and I am going to just tap those seeds down making a little indentation right on top of the seed with that finger. I am not trying to plant the seed very deep. I am just trying to indentation so that I can come back and basically scrape a 16th or so or the potting soil that is on the edges of this little hole that I am making like so to cover the seed. Now I am going back and knocking down the edges of that little crater that I made to put dirt on top of those seeds.
