Tomatoes are considered to be a crop requiring "full sun" to grow and produce fruit where full sun means at least 6 hours of direct sun per day. So, growing them with less sun that will be a challenge. It might be possible to get a crop if you're using mature transplants, but starting from seed will add to the challenge. Your best bet would be to try a cherry tomato variety that is known to produce early.
I planted tomato seeds and got more plants than I thought I would. I kept transplanting them until I had 7 plants. I have them on my closed-in terrace with large windows all around. They don't get direct sun, but lots of light. I've had little yellow flowers appear and then seem to close up and die. Any suggestions?
