So last year I took one of the tomatoes and extracted all of the seeds, put them in like warm water and dried them off. Took about an hour in total.

Christmas Eve I put some in a container on a window sill, and outside in the frosts of March/April... Today they are producing ripe red delicious tomatoes, never have achieved that in late May, usually it is around August for the first crop, especially as the temperatures fell so low as well outside earlier on.

And man are these crops big! chuckle.gif

What kind of light are you using? Is it blurple, full spectrum or both?

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Growing life is admirable in any form. Creation is awesome.

The two biggest mistakes people make when growing plants inside are over watering and under watering. If they aren't drowning their plants they let them dry up.

That's life up north. Farmers up in Wisconsin often don't plant crops until the first or second week of June. Too likely for a late frost.

This is so true.

One thing I must stress is that I'm no gardener, if I was to class myself on a scale of 1-10 with my gardening skills then I would not even give myself a 1.

For the life of me I never expected some seeds I took out of a tomato last year to now be so tall I'm considering removing the greenhouse roof! chuckle.gif

I think I knew trouble was brewing on Boxing Day when tiny shoots started to show, by March there was literally no choice but to put them outside and deep down I believed the frosts would kill them all!


On warmish days I would water them in the morning, on cold days I would not water them at all, I felt the soil to see how damp/dry it was , and at times found myself speaking to them as well chuckle.gif

Tomatoes are now in full crop, so many in fact I can not give them away quick enough!

Thanks for all the replies, I read all of them as I know there are a lot of people out there in internet land who know what they are doing and being a noob to gardening I highly value all of the advice!

Happy Gardening! cheers.gif

There is nothing tastier than a tomato salad using fresh grown tomatoes from a garden.
