Outdoor Tomatoes: Catch Up

At the start of the month it was miserable and cold, and as we move into August it has largely been much of the same but the technique we showed you earlier in the month (click the earlier link) has paid dividends as they have only gone and started fruiting, and whether this fruit goes red or ends up as chutney, the fact we have got any fruit is a miracle.

This was only a short tester row and is a thousand miles away from the growth we normally are at in August but the summer has been erratic, the weather a let down and we are even considering making cloches for next year so we can cover crops to maximise warmth and growth.

Until then, let's just spend a moment basking in the fact that we have tomatoes outdoors and they are holding their own.
