system for tomatoes

What is the best system to use for tomatoes taking into consideration long term total cost? I want to grow tomatoes all year long in Vermont. To get growing experience and cost data, I would consider a system for just one tomato plant. Later I would switch to a multi-plant tomato system.

Probably the Water Farm system, since you can just start out with one, then expand to a multi-plant setup:

Yes, Matt, the Water Farm system is probably the best place to start. The system seems portable. I want to grow tomatoes during the warm season of the year on a condo south-facing balcony and move the system indoors during the cold season of the year. For the indoors season what variety of tomato and what nutrient do you suggest?

Re: system for tomatoes

As for the type of tomatoes, it's completely up to you. You'll probably have the best luck with a cherry or grape variety... they always seem to do very well indoors.

For nutrients, you should definitely try out Advantage Grow & Bloom:
