First tomatoes

Posted in: Nature

Woohoo - I "harvested" my first crop of cherry tomatoes today. I've picked a couple off in the past but this is the inaugural picking session.

First Batch Of Cherry Tomatoes

Satisfyingly tasty!

Here's what made most of them:
Cherry Tomato Factory

There's another potted cherry tomato plant that's produced a few too; no picture of that.

Here's the naughty tomato plant that seems to consume huge amounts of water, produce lots of leaves, sprawl all over the garden and yet produce no goddam fruit. Bad tomato plant!

Slacker Tomato Plants
Lazy Plant (this is nearly ten times as much vegetatation)

I think what is happening is that it requires so much watering (almost daily) and it doesn't get that from me so suffers repeated drought/drench cycles; you can see the yellow leaves. So in fact I am the negligent owner. It has produced a little fruit but the snails enjoyed them first. My neglect extends to not attaching them to some supporting bamboo. The bamboo's there but they more or less ignored it and instead sprangled across the grass.

Thanks to my mum for setting the plants up!

My experiments in lawn repair and reseeding are going quite well. More on that another time.

Having been a keen gardener for many years and always growing Tomato's & Runner Beans for my own harvest.
Imagine my 'shock' yesterday afternoon when I was Drug Raided at 13:34 by EIGHT CID for supposedly growing 19 Cannabis Plants on my Balcony.
What a shame They were only TOMATO PLANTS, (lol)
They're faces were as 'Red' as the Tomato's themselves!!! Ha Ha Ha... (****s).
