My tomapoes are a flop.They have no size and what I have are tough skinned.I have Shirley ang G.Delight.I am watering and feeding from the bottom.I have taken leaves off as I usually do.I wonder if I have overdone it.I have met one or two people with the same problem.



The weather has caused a lot of problems with tomatoes this year. In this case though if the skins are tough it is due to irregular watering.

gardeners delight are supposed to be small - at least mine always are ! But they taste superb and I'll definitely he growing them again next year.
From what I've read tomatoes need a really good soaking just twice a week but I've watered mine every day with great results.
Sorry - not sure about the tough skins
