I took a cutting off of a cherry tomato plant several weeks ago; rooted it in water, and planted it outside in a raised bed for a while.

A couple weeks ago I brought it indoors with the intention of trying to save it and see if those tiny 'maters on it would ripen.

There are even more blossoms on it now. I am going to try to pollinate them with a tiny brush. I thought it a pretty plant none the less, even in Christmas-y colors!

(I know it looks nice outside through the window, but its been 25* at night and only 36* right now!)

Sunny, well, look at that. I never have even Thought of bringing in a tomato plant. I'm so glad it worked for you, and from a cutting yet. Now I cannot wait until next fall to give this a go. Who'da thunk!

That's great! Tomatoes don't ripen with sun, it's warmth that does it. That plant looks so healthy! Well done.

I brought in a mini rose bush to see if I can keep it through the winter... If I can remember to keep watering it that is!
