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 🍅
    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 🍅🍅🍅
    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
    So much for cherry tomatoes! I never got more than three tomatoes per truss. I'll know better next time.
  8. Turning red!!
    This took weeks and the weather was getting colder every day.
  9. So close
    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 🍅🍅🍅
    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!
