Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

I am happy to report that the Tigerella toms are ripening very well   :lol:

Well done - let us know what they taste like.

Well, I had an excuse to assassinate my triffids, bush tomatoes today and let some air and light into that end of the tunnel. Some were showing black on their leaves and stems so I needed no further excuse. Now I have to find a way of ripening a supermarket basket full of the things

My Tigerella's have snapped the stem they were growing on. Still a small fibre of the stem connected so bandaged it and supported it. This happened with another plant and astonishingly enough it carried on growing as if nothing happened.

I can defininately support the idea that bananas help to ripen green tomatoes.  At the end of the season when I am clearing out my plants, I pick all green tomatoes regardless of size, place them on newspaper in a drawer in my kitchen with a banana and leave them for a couple of weeks.  Come back at regular intervals and take the red ones out.  Worked a treat and meant I was able to still have home grown tomatoes well into November.

Get noshing nana's!!!
