Answer: Tomatoes are difficult to grow indoors. It's expensive to get them to blossom and bear fruit, since fluorescent bulbs don't provide the necessary light intensity. Sodium or halide bulbs in special heavy-duty fixtures do the trick - you can order them through Gardener's Supply Co. (down in the Burlington Intervale - 660-3505; http://www.gardeners.com). Only you can decide the true value of homegrown, vine-ripened tomatoes in January! Enjoy!
