the only thing i can sugest is to grow your own and pick them when big enough,2 or 3 plants should be enough.

Have tried growing my own but this year didn't have a green house so they didn't do too well. We do have a local gardening club so thats a good thought.Thank you every one for the speedy response and advice.

Do you have a Farmer's Market? There's two of them here in Huntsville. Are you a part of any group with a bulletin board, like a break room at work, or church?

You could try planting tomatoes deliberately late - my thoughts go back to the summer of '76 when there was a very long hot summer and salads were the main dish, following which I washed the dishes, waited until the washing-up water was cold, then threw it over the garden. To my surprise I found tomato plants growing amongst the roses later in the year - far too late for the tomatoes to ripen, so made POUNDS of Green Tomato Chutney which lasted for years! :o)

Just to let you all know that i managed to obtain some green tomatoes from a couple who have an allotment up in Derbyshire. Spent Sunday morning making the chutney. Won't last for years tho, as will be giving some to my two daughters and other relatives. Thats the best part of it really-the sharing.
