Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

I have love affair with tomatoes and I wanted to try some indoor fall tomatoes. I planted on August 2nd and some of the plants are huge now (almost 6 feet tall Great Whites in my kitchen!!). Some flowers have come and gone and some are just blooming. I have been pruning branches or leaves that turn yellow or look like they are dying so the energy goes elsewhere. But I am not sure how much longer until I can expect some tomatoes?? Maybe by Thanksgiving???? New Years??

Very interesting! Do you really think that you'll get fruit? What about pollination? Apparently, wind is an important component for "self-pollination". Here's an article that came up when I searched "tomato pollination: http://www.grow-tomato-sauce.com/tomatopollination.html
Any master gardeners have any advice for Alexandra?
I live in New Hampshire, so they were outside until about 3 or 4 weeks ago. It is too cold to have them outside now, but this was just a little experiment I wanted to try :). Thanks for the article!!
Interesting article. I listened to a teacher at OSU talk about sex in the garden. She actually had her sons go out to her greenhouse regularly during bloom time and feather dust the plants. Ingenious I thought.
