Check out this video about growing delicious tomatoes in winter:
I think it’s great that people near indoor tomato farms like this one can still have fresh, local produce in winter rather than buying tomatoes that have been shipped from warmer climates.
It’s wonderful that the tomatoes in this video are pesticide-free.
However, I’m wondering how much energy is used to heat the greenhouse and fuel the computer that manages the watering of the plants.
Although, when you consider the energy saved on shipping expenditures, it may very well even out or be more energy efficient.
Also, I hear about new, amazing uses for coconut all the time!
This is the first time I’ve ever heard of coconut being used to nourish plants like tomatoes. Pretty awesome to see how they grow tomatoes in winter.
