I survived!!!

In other news, finally, at long, long last, my pear shaped tomatoes are starting to ripen.  I popped out yesterday evening to water the garden and caught a flash of something bright, investigated and, lo and behold, there they were, two or three tomatoes definitely turning orange!

The accidental hundreds and thousands are, as last year, producing - er - hundreds and thousands of titchy marble shaped fruit but no sign of red there yet.  Keeping fingers crossed there.

All the other tomatoes are now producing ripe fruit faster.  I usually come in with handfuls!  OK, so one beef tomato is a handful, but you know what I mean!

I think I'm getting money's worth now!


  1. So pleased to hear you survived - good for you, hope the day went well! :o)
    Fantastic re the tomatoes - have you had some of the black ones yet? The tomatoes we sampled were absolutely wonderful.
    Hope today goes well, too.

  2. We're too far north, the toms plants have all given up. Jx

  3. That's sad, Joan! No, I haven't started the black tomatoes yet. They are very slow.:-(
