Day 52

I have about 20 flowers on my tomato plants.
Nice, will have tomatoes in the winter.

pics will follow when I see small forming tomatoes.

When I planted my tomatoes, I threw in 25 seeds, thinking maybe half would come out, well big mistake, I have 25 tomato plants, spread over 2 grow beds, there is no space in the beds anymore. I had to take 5 out, put them in pots and put them at a south window.

Cool, what varieties did you grow?

Mine are starting to flower also. I'll post up a pic this weekend.

Those are a Home Depot $1 package of seeds I planted as a test, didn't expect they would do that great.

I have 6 Red Pondersosa Heirloom Tomatoes growing But they are only 3 weeks old, but already more than a feet tall. Prob another month and a half before I will see flowers.

Next year I want to grow only Heirloom veggies and fruits.

I will also make an strawberry tower in the early spring.

Hi Nalu, very cool setup you have there. I was wondering how much those "IBC" tubs run you? And also, I would guess the difference between Hydroponics and Aquaponics is the fish in the system? LOL I thought those Hydroponics stores that have popped up around town were only for growing Illeagal crops. I guess people actually do grow vegtables with that stuff. Great work!

Hi, thanks.
IBC totes can run anywhere from $35 to $500.
