My Tomatoes

my best tomatoes

Dave's recent post on tomatoes prompted me to make this one.

Of course my tomato numbers pale into insignificance compared to Chilipeppers but they should cover my family's needs.

My tomato plants have not done as well this year as last. I think I didn't pot them on promptly enough. However, since I did pot them on and move them to a south facing window, a lot of them have just taken off.

The Siberian tomato is the strongest plant so far. Next is Oregon Spring, Alaskan Fancy and Black Krim. My cherry tomato plants have not done too well and I only have a few of these that are looking strong. Same for the Reis tomato.

Hope they do well for you, you can't beat the taste of home grown tomatoes.

I think I will grow my tomatoes up in the bedroom next year. Downstairs is just too draughty with everybody walking in and out and leaving doors open.They look really super, Rachel.
