indoor gardening fail.

Internets, I present the entire harvest of the tomato bush my dear wife lovingly watered and pruned for the last few months:


I think at this point we’ll write off the indoor tomato growing as a failed experiment, and use AeroGrow thingie #2 for herbs instead.

  1. Hmmm… Must be big hands or the camera angle or something. Those things look huge on TV. And we all know the TV does not lie.

    Green beans did pretty well in mine.

    We went with the upside-down hanging planters for tomatoes, and they worked really well. Baseball-sized, and with good flavor.

    Hydroponic tomatoes were kind of tasteless.

    Green beans and peas worked well hanging.

    Strawberries were a tragic mistake.

    Tomatoes need a little drought to produce fruit. If you don’t give them the drought, they don’t bother fruiting.

    But how did it taste?

    I haven’t had the heart to eat it yet. I figured that honor should go to the avid gardener who produced it. She can have a very, very small tomato salad.

    Awww, so CUTE! Pop it in a Bloody Mary for her ladyship to have as a reward for her efforts.

    Nevertheless, ’tis a fine lookin’ … tomatoette.

    Did the plant produce any flowers? If so, the problem might be the lack of pollinators. In-door tomatoes need to be pollinated by hand.
