My First Ripe Tomato of 2013

Van Wert Ohio Tomato Plant

2012 / 2013 Indoor Hydroponic Kick Off October 28th, 2012

Hydroponic Tomato in Deep Water Culture and Hydroponic Cucumbers in Deep Water Culture.  The tomato is a Hoy tomato that I cloned from my best outdoor plant.  It has just started to take off and looks very healthy.  I'm a little afraid as to how big it will get knowing that they grew over 10 feet tall outside.

Is it crazy for me to use a CFL grow bulb to boost the growth of an immature gold thread false cypress? I planted three of these specimens this spring in front of a bay window.

Germinating Virginia Gold Tobacco Seeds

I got these Virginia Gold Tobacco seeds from Larry Hall over on YouTube in his free seed offer.  Here's a look at how tiny the seeds are.

Things are really rolling now.  The Van Wert tomatoes are the most productive I have ever grown indoors.  See the video below for the update.



Indoor Winter Garden Update Van Wert Ohio Tomatoes 3-1-2012


Planted on Christmas Eve in Hydroponics at day 68 we are getting our first Van Wert Ohio Tomato.  I'm excited to see how big they will get in hydroponics.  Loads of flowers on both plants too!  I've been pollinating them with the electric toothbrush.

Indoor Winter Garden Update Van Wert Ohio Tomatoes 2-11-2012

Here are a few photos of my Van Wert Ohio Tomatoes that I got from Lurley.  They LOVE hydroponics.  They went from 1 inch to over 2 feet tall in under 30 days.  Crazy!  There are no problems of any kind and it couldn't be doing better.  I noticed small buds today and hope they develop.  I switched the nutrients to bloom a few days ago and hopefully that helps flowering.  These were planted Christmas Eve in 2011 and today is February 11th, 2012.  I'll probably post a video of my whole indoor garden tomorrow on the 12th.
