Tomato Experiment

Early in the season I had noticed that the tomatoes which I had grown from seed had very wobbly / unstable stems. I figured this was due to having started the tomatoes indoors with little air movement. So, in July I started a second batch of tomatoes from seed outside. I was not expecting much from these and planted the seeds in little soil. Right now, 6 weeks later, I have four good plants that have come out of this with seven green hanging fruit. We are excited to try these late season yellow pear tomatoes.

 On another note, this week I was very surprised to see that my bonsai raspberry plant had started producing raspberries for the very first time ever!!!! This will also be a late harvest but boy are they delicious.

One of these seasons I am going to purposefully start some late patio box style tomatoes in a container and see if I can grow them in the greenhouse through the fall and over winter them in the house during the worst of the winter season with the aid potentially of a grow light. Would be fun to do. Maybe I should do a cutting from my current patio style tomatoes?
