Tomatoes in the house

But I've heard of people who pull the whole plant out (green tomatoes still on) and hang them up-side down in the garage. That way, the plant keeps going just long enough to ripen the remaining tomatoes.
But--- nothing ventured, nothing gained! Try it & see what happens!

I've also brought the whole plant in with no cutting except to remove the green tomatoes, I've also left the tomatoes on. I've brought them in and cut the green way back. I've tried the lighting both ways and AGAIN there is not enough results to bother with any of it.
This year I have a new experiment going. I've bought seeds for the smallest little cherry tomatoes I could find. Just last week I started them from seed. They don't have but the first little leaves so it'll be awhile before anythings even close to ready with them. I really meant to start them a month ago but just busy with other things.
When they're ready to transplat into soil I plan on keeping some pruned way back, others just a bit and other let go wild and do their thing.
I'll use the artificial lighting and also the south window. By the end of January I should know if this idea has worked. If not, I'll probably give up on tomatoes inside UNLESS another bright idea occurs.
So, with all that said, I simply have not found a way to make it worth bothering with. I live in Zone 4 with very frigid miserable winters with many overcast days.
Now if you want an cheap way to grow green onions that's another story!

I would think with a little extra work you could do it. It would be like growing them in a greenhouse. Peppers can be brought in also.
