it’s a great year for tomatoes! i planted a single variety – early girl – from west coast seeds. this is a vine type and they have been prolific to say the least. on average, i bring in 2 to 3 kilo every second day and am expecting between 30 and 40 kilo before the season ends. they are fairly sweet, medium in size and firm.
sauce is the big end plan, however i am slicing and drying some for snacks and to use as a powder in soups and such. the vast majority though will be sauce.
as a bonus we have two “cherry” type bushes on the go too one is a plum and the other a rescue from a neighbour, it is orange in colour and remarkably sweet. these are grown on the patio and are a great snack while working in the yard.
