Hee hee Growing Tomatoes in the House . . .

I'm looking for information on growing my Roma tomatoes inside for the winter. I'm in WV and grew my tomatoes in planters this summer, which worked well. Now I want to bring them inside and keep them producing fruit through the winter months, if it's possible. Any suggestions?

I am thinking of growing tomotoes inside too. I do have green beans started. I think tomoto plants have a lifespan....... wonder if they would live all winter? Try it and see! Keep us posted!!

If you have a sunny spot I would think they'd do o.k. there used to be a lady on here Mrs. Maniac who grew them in the house. We tried a grow room a few years ago, still have all the equipment in the room but we ran into a couple of problems. We had a winter storm that our electric was out for several days and before that, we had fruit flies which we think hatched from the dirt we bought. We were able to find those old fashioned fly strips I think that's what their called, strips of sticky tape that you hang that eventually killed them but that was sure unexpected. I would strongly suggest especially since you are bringing them in from the garden that you buy the fly strips. We found ours tucked in a corner at The Dollar General, Lowes also sells them but may not in the winter??
