Zowie sent me a picture of his first tomato. He didnt have a scale for it but it measured 16 inches for an estimated weight of 1.5 pounds. He has a bigger one coming, and is saying he will have a scale then. I could always bring mine if he needs it. Go Zowie, great start for the giants.

13 inch cc so far on this delicious set. This was meant to be a breeder plant. Its partner is only cot leaves right now. Might have to get creative to keep the plant shorter than the ceiling and still producing blossoms for the next month.

1 1/2 year old bell pepper plant. This is I think the 5th round for fruit. I have picked of all other blossoms except for this one. I like the shape that it shows, longer than the majority that this plant has put out so far. What I donít like,is it is towards the top of the plant. Small vine to feed it.

I hope a nice shaped pepper will show up on this new lower growth. That would be an ideal situation.With a tree trunk superhighway for nutrients to the fruit, it might get big. I am wondering how many years I can keep this plant going.

My hydro plants are a little bit behind last year. I am hoping to have a set before the middle of Febuary. Using a full 2 inch rockwool cube has slowed down how fast the roots reach the nutrient solution.

At least the roots have reached nutrients now. Growth will be much faster now.

My soil tomato keeps growing but slowly. At about 15 inches now. Not going to be my winter pb.
