whats the size of that net/basket thingie that fit in the 5 gal bucket ? and where do i get a lid thats cut for that size net-basket
I appreciate you!
If you get an open pollinated, or heirloom variety it’s easy to save your own seeds, and starting tomatoes from seed without dirt would mean having to buy a little proper seed starter plug but I’m certain you will get better results. Also important to keep them up off the ground to improve your yield.
Nice maters Mike! I have 8 black cherry tomato plants growing in containers and I built them a wood frame with string to climb up. We started them from seed, in smaller containers, then transplanted into the big ones once they were almost a foot tall. It's been about a month and all 8 plants are 3 feet tall, with a ton of blossoms! I've been caring for them every day, suckering, etc. Looking fwd to a bunch of black cherry tomatoes! We've harvested roughly 20 lbs of regular cherry tomatoes off of 3 plants in our raised bed. Love your videos!!!!
Thank You, this shows what you can do with just one plant. Do you preserve any of the tomatoes? Dehydration or freeze drying?
Great video, I love the calmness in your videos, Thanks so much.
Garden is looking great. Can’t wait for the next update.
I have Roma’s and beefsteak tomatoes in the back yard in buckets. Do I need to trim my roots? They are getting pretty big. You inspired me to grow! Thank you.
You have done a great and awesome job with those tomatoes and thanks for sharing 🙂
Nice little garden Mike, looking to see how you build on your success.
Nice looking plants. Thanks for the update
Wow, that looks easy! Thanks for sharing I going to plant some 😉
Thanks Mike, you have inspired me! My experimental growing, is growing, and expanding…too much fun and food to come 😘
May have to send ya a photo or two when I have fruits of my labor of love…🐝🙋♀️😻
It's Tommy the Tomato Version 2 😉👍
Great video brother.. very inspiring.
You have enough there to do some canning maybe !!
Big ups from Down under man 👊🔥😎🌱
Such great results from patience and a little bit of risk taking. May just do myself a similar set up with a Sal Marzano that I picked up a little earlier today. Must be why the plant appeared in the greenhouse this trip thru! -Bob…
Welcome back to video land Mike, you have been missed! Your tomato's are looking really good! May God continue to bless you & your family and kep everything growing like mad. WHAT, NO PAK CHOY? lol
Great video Mike. Everything looks fantastic, even those green ones, like everyone's been mentioning!
Keep on keeping on! 👍😎
Nothing wrong with this at all buddy! Nice looking maters no doubt. So simple and easy to have fresh veggies right from your own backyard. Awesome job done my friend. Thanks for the update! Hope you have a great day!
Hey, Mike. Love you guys as well! I have been trying to do this for five years now. I've eaten about 15 cherry tomatoes and some lettuce so far. Growing indoors is hard. I think my lighting is bad and my containers too small. But, I will kept trying!
Keep the ideas rolling!
I used the home depot orange 5 gallon buckets, and the nutrient water turned green from algae, do I have to give them clean fresh water?
Love your off grid hydroponics system. I’ve been researching about this method and aquaponics. The grid will be wiped out in the near future so it’s good to use your method for survival. I used to live in the panhandle of FL but moved due to all the earth changes and feel living anywhere near big bodies of water like FL wouldn’t be wise. Thanks for your video, I will start doing the kraky method also.
Hi I just watched some of your cooking videos, any chance you will make the pepperoni and pastrami?
Hey Mike! Love your videos and simple gardening methods. What nutrients do you put into the water? Do you have any problem with pests, if you do what do you use to get rid of them? I would love to try the tomatoes, however I live in Florida, and the temperatures are 90-plus everyday. I am a beginning gardener, and would love to try the tomatoes. Would you suggest waiting until next year to begin tomatoes? Thank you for your educational videos. Keep up the good work!
What a place!! Love your videos my friend!
Mmmm those green ones look as good as the ripe tomatoes … Love me some green fried tomatoes!!! What a cool set up y'all have 👍😃👍
