The Great Indoor Tomato Experiment Ripens

Chocolate Cherry tomatoes getting ripe.  They will be very dark brown when ready to eat.

In only a few short days, the Snarky Gardener will be eating homegrown cherry tomatoes in February. Of course there are only 6, so it won’t be much of a feast, but still, pretty cool. The Snarky Orange Cherry tomato plant is finally getting flowers. It had others a few weeks ago, but they grew into the lights and were burnt off (so sad). A cutting was also taken off the Chocolate Cherry to start a potted tomato plant. Not sure what I’m going to with it yet, but I’m sure I’ll think of something.

  1. Wow! I didn’t know tomatoes would grow indoors without bees, etc., to pollinate them. Makes me want to dig out my seed packets, pots, potting soil and start “seeding” early!!!

  2. I’ve had the AeroGarden with herbs growing all winter. Just ordered the tomato garden. The herbs were easy and carefree, I’ll be interested to see how it goes with tomatoes!

    1. Tomatoes and peppers are a little harder but still very manageable. My experiment went with non-Aerogarden seeds, but I still think it was a great success. Just be careful not to over fertilize.
