Way too late to edit, but duh! I am myself growing some heirloom indeterminate tomatoes in pots, in the greenhouse, and they're doing fine.

They're in 15 gallon pots, tied up in a cage of twine up to the greenhouse purlins about 9' up, and when they get that high will start back down again. You're theoretically supposed to prune greenhouse tomatoes fairly heavily, though I don't very much as I suspect removing all that leaf surface affects the flavor; and some people do setups in which, as the top of the plant gets too high, it's let down to bring the fruit into reach.
