I wasn't sure if it would pollinate indoors (no bees). I did dab around with a artist paint brush. Not sure if the plant self pollinated or I did it? But, it worked.
Is that kind of like a HJ for plants? O.o sorry couldn't help myself, but on a more serious note, I see you have reflectors going up the sides, do they help much? I'm thinking of starting something like this, and was debating on painting the sides with chrome paint.

Nice tomato

I harvested all my green tomatoes, about 100 of them, they wouldn't get red... wrong K temperature? I pickled them all.

Also pulled out all the tomato plants and replanted with lettuces, spinach, kale, cucumbers and a whole bunch of herbs.

I will stay away from tomatoes indoors, I will try again early spring when my aquaponics is set up outside.

Love this thread! And even more so as a fellow vegan. I am going to bookmark this so I can possibly talk my wife into something similar.

We're just excited to be moving to an new place where we can have a vegetable garden, but this is a whole other level.

Wow Dogfish, this is amazing! I didn't know you can do this with fish tanks.

With you harvest your lettuce, do you pull all of it out or leave the base to regrow? What else can you grow? or can you grow almost anything?

I'm sorry for the multiple questions, but this is such a fantastic idea and I have a n empty 10 gallon that I'd like to experiment with.

Wow! How have I missed this thread? I love the setup, the potted anubias with goldfish are a nice combo too. subbed... looking forward to seeing how your plants produce over the long haul.

Do you know what the life expectancy is for the tomatoes and peppers? I assume you can harvest the salad a few times before replanting.

I'm really interested in hydroponics too although my first attempt will be rather small. I've ordered a 5g fish tank w/ a 5 pot planter top that I hope to use for a kitchen herb garden. Would love to grow what you're growing though. Especially the peppers as they are getting so outrageously expensive.
