So far, the process has been fairly painless...the cuttings rooted well, transplanted fine and even recovered enough in the last month to put out some new growth and several little flowers!
So, with the cooler evenings (and treats of frost) we brought in our three pots of cherry tomatoes a couple of days ago (to clarify, two of the cherry tomatoes are cuttings, while the third was planted in a pot as a transplant at the beginning of the summer and I'm just trying to prolong its life ;-) )
While my original intention was to spread them around the house they are now positioned on the bottom shelf of our grow light stand in our laundry room. Once they actually came inside, it became apparent that they would take up much more room than I originally envisioned, so I trimmed some of the suckers and onto the stand they went!
The three black pots in the photo below are our tomatoes. I strategically placed them so the will grow behind the lights and against the wall so 1) they'll take up less space and 2) so I can utilize the wall and back braces of the stand to better support their vines as they continue to grow (fingers crossed). Right now the vines are only being supported by a few bamboo sticks and binder clips to rest their little stems on.
With all the new growth and flowering happening, I am quite hopeful they will continue to produce. There really is nothing quite like a tomato grown in the sun and fresh off the vine, so their quality is yet to be determined. However, I may think differently if I can add a few of these babies to my salad in the dead of winter. Time will tell...
