Ripening Toms

My upside down tomatoes are ripening up nicely now and each flower was pollinated.  I am growing the same variety conventionally in pots in the greenhouse.  Although the plants are very leafy and healthy looking there are hardly any fruits and yet still some flowers to be pollinated.  Next year I think I will just grow tomatoes outdoors in hanging baskets with a contingency plan of transferring them to the greenhouse if we have a cold and wet year. 


  1. Fantastic. This time last year I think all my tomatoes were still resolutely green. This year I am inundated! It's hard to know how many plants to grow when the weather is so unpredictable. It's the same with cucumbers.

  2. That definitely was a very successful way of growing tomatoes!
