      I extended my tomatoes growing season by bringing them indoors for two months when the night time frosts hit. I kept them by the window during the day and was able to have some decent tasting fruits for a few weeks longer.

    You hit the nail on the head when you say indoor tomatoes need to be pollinated. Most beginners to indoor gardening forget this stage and then they wonder why all the blossoms fall off. You definitely have to get in there with a cotton swab and play the part of a bee, or else you'll have no tomatoes.
