I picked my first ripe tomatoes today. Quite late this year. Last year it was early July, and in previous years it has been in June. These are all outdoor grown Sungold tomatoes
One of the best tasting tomatoes ever!
Meanwhile, I am disappointed in these Indigo Rose tomatoes.
Launched with flare and a fanfare this Spring... I have plants sent to me by Suttons seeds, and seeds grown by me from Suttons. Well... the top and shoulders are black, but the rest is stubbornly green.
It looks like the bottom half ripens to red while the top stays purple...Hmmm let's see what happens with the rest. Not as I had expected.
Interesting varieties from Seeds of Italy
do not disappoint. This round, melon cucumber from Manduria, Italy is coming along nicely. Lots and lots on the vine. Can't wait to taste this one.
These lovely gold flat beans from Seeds of Italy
are Meraviglia di Venezia. Tender, flat and prolific with really healthy looking foliage. What a winner!
Meanwhile the bucket of comfrey liquid sizzles away in a smelly corner of the garden!
