Tomatoes

Picked first Toms yesterday. Tasted lovely in a ham and tomatoe sandwich for Lunch. Appear to have a good crop but they are slow to ripen

Tomatoes

Ours are ready for picking too Dottie. Since I've been growing these turbo (grafted plants) we have had a much better crop. I have a crowd of girls here on Monday and I think I will pick them for part of our lunch.

Tomatos

Our greenhouse tomatoes seemed a slow starting to ripen but really took off after the first spell of a few days in a row of decent sunshine.

I had 4 each of Alicante, Ailsa Craig and Roma. I'll stick with the same varieties next year but as the Roma didn't do as well as I'd hoped, may change the balance next year to 3,3 and 6 Roma as they are better for sauces, etc. and there's a limit to how many salad tomatoes we can eat...

Outside, the Ferline (chosen for blight resistance) haven't fruited much and I've had no ripe ones yet - maybe there will be a late flourish for green tomato chutney?

And the Sungold was a mistake on my part. I failed to notice they were a cordon type. Back to Tumbler or Tumbling Tom for the hanging baskets next year...

Tomatoes

I think I may go back to Tumbling Tom too. The flavour of these we've grown this year has been disappointing (not as sweet), although the crop is amazing. As you say, there are just so many you can put in the sandwiches! I may be making a red tomato chutney at this rate.

Tomatos

In years where we have had a lot of the cherry ones, they have wound up in ratatouille type mixes (fry up with courgette, onion - no particular recipe - just use what's whatever is there) for the freezer or sometimes just frozen whole in bags for cooking later
