Hows the tomatoes coming along Verd? fairygirls got some ripening. I think she must be next to a nuclear reactor.
My first attempt is coming along nicely. I wittled my plants down to 2x Black Cherry, 2x gardeners delight and 2x Tigarella. They went into grow pots in grow bags, 2 per growbag, and look good. The black cherry have been the most prolific and they have a set of fruit ripening already, the other have just had their first set of flowers.
I've got autovents on the greenhouse so hopefully i should avoid the dreaded blight, not that i would know when i got it..
First big test though as we're off on holiday for 2 weeks.. hopeing my auto waterer does the job!

I have tried to watch 3 different videos without success even though I have adobe flash player 11 installed. All I can see is a blank whitespace where the video should be. Can anyone advise me on a workaround?
Assuming you're using Internet Expolrer, I found that turning off Tracking Protection allowed me to see the videos - Click on the No Entry icon in the address bar and Turn Tracking Protection off. You can turn it back on again after the video to prevent annoying ads. Hope this helps.
Commercial growers get fantastic tomato yields but they don't taste so good. Concentrate on quality
My tips would be make sure that you have good light with clean glass and you give excellent ventilation
I'm growing gardener's delight and the final growing position will be grow bags in the greenhouse. What sort of feed is best and what can I expect taste-wise? Last year I grew money maker and while they were nice and big, the taste was more bland than I was expecting.
Gardener's Delight are one of the best flavoured of the older varieties, so you should be in for a pleasant surprise. Modern hybrid cherry-sized varieties like Sungold are sweeter and have more flavour too, but the seeds won't come true if you save them.
My top-tip for flavour is to avoid over-watering and over-feeding. As our resident tomato expert Italiophile says, give them 'tough love' and they'll reward you!
