Soilless Gardening – Tomato forest in trays

Tomatoes in a tray
Just outside my bedroom window is what I call my tomato forest.

It started out as this. Shallow trays filled with cocopeat and compost. It was only supposed to be for herbs and leaves and the like. I just happened to have four types of tomatoes at the moment, so those went to the top layer of trays. I also put two bean seeds along with it.

But the the rains came, and brought ice and destruction with it.

I even had to rein them in.

And there were baby vegetables.

Along the way, my long beans mutated into Avarakkai. :P
