Tomato experiment
« on: June 18, 2013, 15:11 »
Well, all my tomatoes are now in grow bags in the greenhouse.... and now fingers crossed that my tomato experiment comes off. Having improved year-on-year in getting ripe fruit off my tomatoes, it all went to my head a bit in January when I put an order in from t'internet. So I ended up ordering seeds for 5 entirely new (to me), "interesting" looking varieties:

Brown Berry
Currant sweet pea
Garden Peach
Tiny Tim
Lemon Plum

Two seeds of each variety planted by me and my two girls (aged 5!) in early April, and germinated in the conservatory.

22 seedlings germinated.... of which 12 grew on strongly...resulting in 10 tomato plants planted out (2 got very leggy before we planted out):

1 x Brown Berry
4 x Currant sweet pea
2 x Garden peach
1 x Tiny tim
2 x Lemon Plum

So, please place your bets.... will lazza and his lazettes get any tomatoes at all this year?!

specially on tiny tim!  :lol:

Out of those varieties, I've only grown Tiny Tim and yellow plum which could be like your lemon plum.

Hope you and the Lazettes get loads of tomatoes.  The girls will love the little ones!   ;) ;)
