Cherry Toms

Grown from a seed taken from supermarket tomato so no idea what variety.

I didn't know you could grow tomatoes that way! I once grew peppers (capsicum) from a supermarket one. I dried the seeds out and planted them - and they grew!! They fruited too - amazing.

That's exactly what I did Sheilar

One very small but very important point - Do you think we'll have enough sun to turn it red??! :D

24 Jun, 2012

 

That's a very sore point Ptracey...I binned them all last year, never got one to ripen. :(

Hire a sun bed!! lol

How are your Apples doing Sheilar? and more important..Have you heard from Tommyshortlegs? I have not seen him.

green tomato chutney??

i have been wondering for a few days about tommyshortlegs, didnt know who to ask, i hope he is ok.

Does Louise see him on Ispyabird ? I will ask now.

thats a good thought, i havent been on there for ages.

It's a bit early yet for the apples, but there was plenty of blossom on it earlier in the year which is a good sign. The more blossom, the more apples. They're not normally ready for picking til about late August/early September but they're starting to form now.

Now you come to mention it, I haven't heard from Tommy for a while. Do you think I should send him a PM and make sure he's OK?

I still have loads of Green tom Chutney from the year before that BTW !! Done I hope all is ok..He was poorly.

24 Jun, 2012

 

Yes please Sheilar...You are his Favourite! I have just sent a Pm to Louise1 to see if she knows anything.

24 Jun, 2012

 

i hope he is ok too.

How satisfying is that - to grow a tomato plant from a sprmrkt tomato! Hope it ripens and that you'll have the pleasure of eating it :))

24 Jun, 2012

 

Well Pimp, two Sheilas are better than one!! lol

24 Jun, 2012

Looks like a goosegog!

24 Jun, 2012

 

Brilliant i thought that too Grandmage ;)

Pimp, Have you tried putting a banana with green Tomatoes to help ripen them?

25 Jun, 2012

 

What is all this about Tommy? I hadn't heard anything. I knew he wasn't well back in the winter, but nothing since.

25 Jun, 2012

 

Morning G. Tommy usually pops up a bird blog each month even managed one from hospital once...but not heard anything since April, so it's fingers crossed.

25 Jun, 2012

 

Morning, Pims. Oh, I see. I thought someone had had some news about him. In a way, no news maybe good news then. Fingers crossed.

25 Jun, 2012

 

Morning Pim ...
Hmmm. ... good photo ...
... looks like the rare "Shrek" tomato ..
Congrats on growing this unusual variety. ;o)

25 Jun, 2012

 

Good Morning TT... I had the national collection of Shrek tomatoes last year...;))

I tried that Ptracey with no joy..:( I did notice that after I gave up, everyone elses toms seemed to ripen up..lol

25 Jun, 2012

 

Mine didn't ripen!
I put 6 tomato plants out last week and something ate the lot! Lucky I have 4 more in the poly shed and one in the garden.
Last year I had a wonderful yellow cherry crop, self seeded in the gravel. Result!

25 Jun, 2012

 

Good idea,Pimms..I might try that myself next year..I get some sweet cherry toms from A..i, lovely flavour..

25 Jun, 2012

 

I'm a lazy devil and accept whatever is offered to me every year. One of these days nobody is going to do the honours and grow them to a reasonable size before giving them to me....
