The Aerogarden(my countertop garden) said in the materials that Tomato plants last five months once they start to fruit. and they did - we had fresh cherry tomatoes from Thanksgiving to last night - but after taking the latest tomatoes off the plant I noticed there are no 'new' growth - no sprouts of future tomatoes. So tonight I will de-tomato the aerogarden and get it ready for spring/summer herbs. (Basil, Oregano, Mint, Parsley, Terragon, and Lemon Basil) I love this hobby a great deal - and it's been great growing tomatoes. I don't think we'll do it again though - because it doesn't grow enough to not have to buy cherry tomatoes at the store. When I plant the herbs - i will literally get overwhelmed with the amount it produces and start drying herbs and all my recipes become all about the fresh herbs. (OMG I LOVE TARRAGON!) but - anyway - at around 6pm PST - please join me in a moment for the tomato plants before they head off to tomato plant heaven.
