Tomato Time

A noticablly late season, and unhealthy plants due to planting too close together, I wasn’t expecting a bumper crop. We are not doing too badly though.

    Very nice. I also had a bumper crop from my 2 self sown and one patio plant in a pot. Supplied the neighbours with heaps and had more than enough for us. Made tomato soup for freezer and 3 bottles of tomato sauce as well. Liza

  2. Living close together has nurtured the Love (Apples) & coloured a rich contrast in sweet harmony.

  3. Looks pretty tasty 🙂 what varieties have you got there?

    How tempting is it to grow more plants than you should. A friend says “oh I’ve got a seeding of Black Liquorice Peanut” and you think that sounds like an awesome variety. Add a few more friends into the mix and, well, you end up growing 7 plants in a space meant for 4 (speaking from personal experience).

      I am pretty bad when it comes to labeling. As a result, I don’t keep a good record of what I varieties I have planted. I can tell you though that the yellow ones are my absolute favourite tomato, Wapsipinicon Peach, which you can find more information for on this link http://www.hobartbackyardfarmer.net/tomato-tongue-twister/

      Normally Juz, I will heavily thin the tomato leaves, to allow more air movement between the plants, and normally get away with this. This year though, I was a little lazy/time poor.
