Formerly half dead, whiskey bottle fed tomatoes taking over laundry room.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Remember the junk tomatoes we got for $1 at the end of last season and ignored for a few months? Here's what they're doing now. They're still in the lousy hanging baskets on a former laundry rack about 2 ft. from the south facing window. We feed them a ~1- 3 ratio mix of water and bloom mix and here's how they're going. Oh, the far right one is from a seed we pulled from a ripe tomato we liked and it was growing in a Rapid Rooter in a tub of nutes when I'd remember to water it.

Thanks, we haven't tried them

Thanks, we haven't tried them yet, they're going in a salad tonight, fresh off the vine. Can't believe how well the whiskey/wine bottle trick is working. The bougainvillea the tomatoes are growing around has been pretty much lifeless the last few winters but it's starting to bloom already just using a wine bottle to keep it watered.

Here's a way for your plants to let you know when they need tending and even thank you via Twitter ... Botanicalls . If they were just wireless.....
