Well the rain held off for yestarday morning and we sold our stuff like crazy.  I hope soon we will have enough for a new HortSoc Store (our old one was burgled (again) on Tuesday.) Why must people do this?(':evil:')

The tomatoes went very well, except we didn't have enough enough Gardener's Delight and lots of people wanted 'Green Grape' which I was selling last year.

Lots wanted Moneymaker, but I told them to do Alicante instead ... so sold all the Alicante. All (my spares): Sweet Olive, Incas and Ildi went.
Someone left several cells of 'yellow' tomatoes on my doorstep. They did not sell (8 to a 4" cell!!! poor devils), so I will try separating them and planting them out to see what happens. So, next year will do more Gardener's Delight, but what's the bet they won't sell! Oh well.

Off to plant my stuff now - its not raining and there's LOTS to do! Allotments are great fun, but hard work ...
Keep the plot cultivated, that's the best way to ensure its future.

Quote from: "john"
Welcome, Comic_muse. I've not heard of the variety but it sounds interesting.  Where did you get the seeds from?


If you think Moneymaker is a bag of water in a skin, then you will be just an enchanted to Tigerella.  they look very interesting - tomato colour with yellow stripes (the americans think they invented the breed!), but I think they were tastless and not many fruits for the effort either.  Anything called Mr something too, is always suspect! :roll:

I'm growing this year:
Roma plum bush for cooking
Incas plum bush for cooking
Gardeners delight cherry cordon for salads
Marmande beeksteak for sandwiches
Gartenperle for the children
Yellow round and yellw sausage shaped ones that I've kept seed from, not sure of variety but they tasted sweet last year, and look good in cooking.

I'm growing 2 varieties, both heirloom ones.

Old fashioned red beefsteak and old fashioned red cherry. I have 6 of each plant, was hoping for a lot more but space is a limiting factor when you share the plot.
