TomatoCam.net is brought to you by June, a Brooklyn, NY, natural wine bar and restaurant offering drive-up food and libations.

TomatoCam first went online eleven years ago on April 25, 2009. The stay-at-home situation was the motivation to bring it back for 2020.

Follow us on Twitter @TomatoCam for all event announcements such as equipment changes and scheduled close-ups.

If the window above is dark, it's probably nighttime here.

The Streaming Setup

Think about it. Have your really got nothing better to do than to watch tomatoes grow? I asked this eleven years ago when TomatoCam first launched, but we didn't have an ongoing pandemic at that point. So I guess you don't have anything better to do right now.

Okay, since you're here...

The camera is a Sony RX100mk7 shooting at 1080p. The HDMI output passes through a Magewell USB Capture device to an ASUS VivoBook Flip Laptop running Windows 10.

The laptop streams over WiFi to Twitch.

The website is running on an Amazon Web Server (AWS).
