Indoor Cherry Tomatoes

Planted cherry tomato seeds from my 2008 harvest in a couple tiny ceramic pots in sunny window. Mulched lightly with sphagnum peat moss. These seedlings will be grown indoors, if possible; will eventually transplant into hanging planters in front of southern-facing kitchen and dining room windows. May plant some outdoors to experiment with an earlier harvest.
