The Slow Tomato Race – Whether The Weather

I’ve now got a further six tomatoes turning red. Once these have ripened I’ll be up to eleven. The rest are still there (I’ve not killed them yet), but they’re still green and this troubles me.

Week Seventeen

Week Seventeen

To technically complete the challenge I have produce edible fruit. While green tomatoes can be used in plenty of recipes it wasn’t what I was aiming for. Besides I only need one more to turn red and I’ve hit my target.

With August slipping by summer has now started to vanish as well and I am now concerned that it will be too cold for the rest of the fruit to ripen. I’m going to monitor how the plant is surviving, but there might be a move into the house for the last few weeks.
