When summer ends, there's no reason you can't prolong enjoyment of homegrown tomatoes throughout the winter months. Propagated from cuttings taken from last season's plants or started from seed, determinate or dwarf cherry tomatoes can be grown successfully indoors as long as they are exposed to as much sunlight as possible. In cases where natural light is insufficient, supplementing with artificial light helps supply the 10 to 12 hours per day that all varieties, including cherry tomatoes, need to develop properly and produce a good crop.

Place a table or other flat-surfaced stand in your sunniest south or southeast-facing window and install a grow light over the stand. Wash seed-starting trays with a solution of a few drops of mild detergent, such as dish detergent, in a gallon of hot water. Allow to air dry.

Fill the trays with potting medium to 1 inch from the top and smooth the top with your hand. Water the medium thoroughly but do not saturate it; this helps the soil settle more evenly in the trays.

Poke holes with a pencil tip about 1/2 inch deep and 1 inch apart in the planting medium and drop one cherry tomato seed in each. Bring the soil lightly over the seeds. Cover the trays with clear plastic film, leaving one end slightly open to allow for air circulation.

Place trays in a dark, warm area with a constant temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit until the seeds germinate and appear through the soil's surface.

Remove the plastic film from the trays, and place them on the stand under the grow lights and turn them on as the natural daylight diminishes.

Position the trays about 6 inches below the lights, adjusting this distance by several inches to avoid plant burn if you use high-wattage light bulbs.
