Well with all this very humid weather we've had this week the poor old tomatoes have really taken a hammering and are now looking very sad indeed. Many are rotten and coupled with all the caterpillar damage it's been a pretty disappointing outcome to a much looked forward to harvest. I guess that's just the way things go. We are hoping to get a green house or grow tunnel in the not too distant future, so that next year we'll get a much better head start and hopefully a better crop.
I have managed to bag up a few tomatoes, mainly Roma, and freeze them but it's no where near as many as we had last year. I'm keeping a close eye on the Black Krim plant as there are a few reasonable (unripe) fruit on this one and it's my favourite for taste, while the Roma are best for cooking.
