This is just a very quick update on my Aerogarden Cherry Tomato plants which have been growing now for 171 days.
I have been experimenting with hydroponically grown tomatoes since last year with limited success, but these Aerogarden tomatoes are starting to produce quite a bit of fruit.
This is the biggest harvest so far with eight cherry tomatoes I picked off the plant yesterday.
The tomatoes do actually taste like cherry tomatoes, although I did find them a little bit more ‘meaty’ than the greenhouse grown ones I buy at the grocery store.
Growing things hydroponically still blows my mind since the plants are essentially growing straight out of water and a little tiny bit of nutrients that I add to the water, and then they just pull carbon out of the air from the carbon monoxide we produce as humans.
Of course I realize that is how all plants work, but I still find it very fascinating to see plants growing without soil. 🙂
What do you think of my tomatoes?
