It’s not that I didn’t know that herbs, like cilantro, flowered. It is, after all, part of the reproductive cycle. It’s just that I have never seen cilantro flowers before. They’re beautiful.
This is likely my last AeroGarden post for the tomatoes. The plants are no longer growing in height nor width, and are really focused on just producing so, rather than continuing to post pictures like this one, I’m going to end the photos here. Y0u can see the next “harvest” coming in. I’ll most likely […]
On day 84, I picked the first batch of heirloom tomatoes from the AeroGarden. Admittedly, I did pick some individuals from the plant in the proceeding days, just to taste. I’m really happy with the way that they turned out and cannot wait to use the rest as they come into ripeness.
It was nice returning home, after a getaway weekend, to see all of the tomatoes in different color states.
It was a pleasant surprise to see a couple of the AeroGarden’s tomatoes starting to show some color, even more than my last check in.
I love the bounty that is coming in, some of it show in the above photo. You can see all of the fruit coming in on the canopy of the plants. There are more coming in beneath that top layer. It’s exciting to see them develop, and even more so when I anticipate how many […]
Every morning we play a game to see how many new tomatoes we can spot growing. All six tomato plants have tomatoes on them. And they just keep appearing everywhere! I had to raise the light hood again. You can see that the plants on the right are growing straight up. The middle and left […]
All six of them are pretty healthy. They’re taking in water much faster as I’m now having to add it to the tank every 2-3 days. Even better is not only the number of blossoms that keep appearing but, we have 4 tomatoes beginning to form. You can see some in the upper left (back) […]
I’m loving the yellow blossoms that are starting to come in. This morning, I raised the light hood (a couple inches) to give them a little more head room, and added plant food.
I need to look into how/when to prune the AeroGarden tomatoes. I feel like now is the time to be doing this. I’m impressed at how much height they have gained since I raised the (roof) lights a couple days ago.
