Biggest thus far #tomato #gyo #red
Wow. Looking great
#myhand #shirley #bestlooking
Yum!!!! Isn't it wonderful to grow your own?! 🍅
Not a huge fan of #tomato and doubt these will even ripen in time. Had about 20 fruits this year and eaten 0 of them 🙈 I put them on the bird feeder, something seems to enjoy them
My tomatoes weren't good this year any idea can I freeze chillies got an abundance of them
@TriciaDickson - you can freeze chilli. Not sure how good they taste frozen though. Maybe do what people do with garlic and dice it and put it in an ice cube tray for when you use?
@kyleleonard Slice em, batter em, and fry em up! Heaven in your mouth
Fry your green tomatoes. Try my #recipe # fried green tomatoes. Mine never changed colour either but they were mighty tasty!
Sounds good @saco & @rhododendronmad! Will give it a go
I made green tomato chutney last year- it was so delicious that I am disappointed at not having any this year to make some!
Cut off and left on the windowsill to ripen 🍎 @beckers1974
I never saw the tag until now @rainygirl70 isn't that ugly, is it? 😢
And the complete plant/s 🍎 #gyo
I love tomato pot growing. And that support behind is a great idea, really smart. I usually put just some stick lol
It's the old shelving from a plastic greenhouse, really works! Just when it grows taller, so I still have some sticks @lilium
🍎 still half green. What does the slight shrivelling up mean?
#gyo #growyourown #tomato
It's like it's gone over on one side isn't it? How frustrating! Has it had intense sun?
Not been to the garden in a week as I don't live here, but could be! The strange English summer weather @TheGardenWife
This weather is indeed nuts! Especially for us up North at the moment eh. I'd put that particular one down to bad luck, I bet the rest do fine 👍
Apparently it's called catfacing! It's to do with temperature drops. Still edible!
@beckers1974 - hopefully the other side goes red soon!
@beckers1974 Ooooh how intersting! I will go and have a Google 🤓 Thank you 😊
@kyleleonard it's suggested to take it off the vine and ripen indoors to prevent the ugly malformation. Also says to rest the vine for a bit then try growing fruit again.
So cut all the unripe fruit off? 😞 would it matter if I used it to make a sauce in a jar? @beckers1974
I suppose you could leave them on, they may just start to look a bit funny, that's all.
@kyleleonard I've read a post somewhere if you pop a banana skin on the base of the plant it helps ripen the fruits !! X
Huge 🍎 #gyo #tomato
Mmm ready for basil and mozzarella soon 😀
@humanbean - not a huge fan of tomatoes!
They look fab 🍅👍
So why are you growing them? I know, it's the challenge and for other people around you to enjoy😂😂
I don't mind them, but find them a bit boring. I might use them in my next chilli-con-carne 😛 @angipangi
Shirley looks like she is blushing!! 😄 wish my toms wud hurry up n blush 😊 @kyleleonard
Can't beat grow your own👍
Looking good! Are you growing them under an overhang or just outside?
@juffertje-in-het-groen - outside! By the side of my plastic greenhouse for a bit of protection
Coming along nicely. 😀
How are they doing? Anything to show for #tomatotuesday?? 🍅
I posted an update today!
@usgardentags - see above
@usgardentags - I have some half the size of my hand - I'll post a photo later
