Tomato jungle

A quick update on the aquaponic tomatoes.  The system is running well.  The salads are running low as I’m in the middle of building some new beds and am behind on sowing new salads.  Fortunately the garden salads are more than compensating. 

The tomatoes though have gone nuts.  I’m really not growing them for high productivity, or I would have trimmed them.  Instead I’m leaving them to grow as bushy as they want. 

There are a good 20 tomatoes fruiting already and plenty more buds – although the bud to tomatoe rate seems much lower than outside. 

I’m enjoying just letting it go to see how big it gets.  Obviously, many lessons learned – chief of which is not to have them up so high.
