Indoor Tomatos
« on: November 30, 2010, 11:21:27 AM »

I have heard it all I think about how you can or can not grow tomatoes inside, in a potted container. My experience is 2 fold. Yes, I grow them every year in a potted container, inside, by a window. But no, they do not produce enough to can, juice and such. They are more of a hobby type plant. I find they are somewhat smaller in size, and not as plentiful as outside ones planted in the ground. For the inside plants, you MUST pollinate each and every blossom just as they are ready to burst their pollen. I use a qtip, and very carefully use the same one, and the same end, every time, on every blossom. Make certain you protect it from any inside house bug spray you may use on occasion. That takes a bunch of time, even with only a couple of plants. Outside, of course you have the bees and bugs to do that. With that said, they need frequent watering, and lots of fertlizer. As these pics show, my 2 plants are just now blossoming out, and this is November 30, 2010. Have fun :beet:

If you stare at this picture long enough you should be able to see a giraffe.
