At last, our first Tomato. We've been having such bad luck with our Toms in recent years; disease, drought, and disaster have meant we've produced almost nothing.
This year my plants are all in large pots, with Mole-hill soil, Horse manure, and home-made Compost to feed them. Even so the plants have not been perfect. At one point I thought I was going to lose them.
Since then, they've had a good dose of Copper Sulphate (the one chemical allowed with Bio growers), and careful control of their watering.
I can't say my plants are perfect; the fruits are all now forming at the top of very tall, spindly, plants, but this doesn't really worry me as long as the fruits are developing OK.
What a pleasure it is to have one's own Tomatoes again. The one above renewed my faith in home-grown.
