I love the smell of tomatoes so I thought I would try to grow some indoors since I have a big sunny bay window.
  1. I got this cute kit from Waitrose

    And then had to wait a couple of months until I got back from Japan and could take care of it.
  2. Sprouts!🌱

    So magical
  3. I had to choose the strongest three to keep and then they grew like mad

  4. Flowers!

    I was really worried about it at this point. It was looking very unhappy and I had to go away on holiday and leave it in the kitchen sink.
  5. The first tomato 🍅
    Static
    I ended up repotting it into a larger pot and it was much happier and grew even bigger and popped out a tomato. I was so excited.
  6. Lots of tomatoes 🍅🍅🍅
    Static
    I should have been pruning it more so ended up with way too many flowers and only a few tomatoes.
  7. The biggest and smallest
    Static
    So much for cherry tomatoes! I never got more than three tomatoes per truss. I'll know better next time.
  8. Turning red!!
    Static
    This took weeks and the weather was getting colder every day.
  9. So close
    Static
    I should actually have been picking these before they turned fully red. I hadn't read that far along on the growing guides 🙃
  10. First harvest 🍅🍅🍅
    Static
    I ate them just with a little salt and olive oil and they were the best tomatoes I've ever tasted.
  11. Now waiting to see if the other 8 will ripen before winter sets in
    It's already freezing in my flat.
  12. Overall a success!
    With the kit and repotting stuff, these are also the most expensive tomatoes I've ever eaten but I learned a lot. Next year will be bigger and better!
