Has anyone got ripe tomatoes from an unheated greenhouse or polytunnel yet? Mine are still dark green

Nope - none here and no sign of turning any time soon.  Im putting it down to the rubbish weather and poor levels of sunlight. Given how long some of the fruit have been sitting on the plants I expect the skins will be rather thick too.  :(

I've got the first few from small bush tomatoes on the staging.  The cordon ones are still resolutely green.

Yep....had my first tomato sandwich a couple of weeks ago and will have another today.  Just a few ripening but very sweet when they do.  Unfortunately, the whole garden is suffering from blight, including the tomatoes, so soon they will all be dead and I'll have no tomatoes, so I'm enjoying them while I can.

No nothing yet. I'm hoping it will be like last year where they seemed to be later than normal but overall I got a slightly larger crop per plant.

Had my first yesterday, Sungold, as always.
