I don't grow stuff like cabbage and cauli, caterpillars love them and they take up far to much room. I keep saying I won't grow Brussels again, grew them this year and the caterpillars had a feast.
In GH -Peppers were a disaster but there's still one plant left with large green peppers on, they refuse to go red...I live in hope.... Aubergines did well, there were a lot of medium sized fruits on about four plants.Chillies did well too.
I had 3 grafted aubergines in the greenhouse and they were brilliant but the ones grown from seed were rubbish
Peppers were rubbish ,chillies o.k and tomatoes had a much smaller crop than usual
I grew 1 grafted tomato plant but can't say it was any better than the ones I grew from seed

I was a bit too enthusiastic this year, sowed tomatoes, peppers, aubergines etc. nice and early, then the weather changed and most were a waste of time. I did get some chillies though. My garden is rubbish, north-east facing, so depressing and I seem to have had my clay soil replaced by mucky slop, yuk!
With all the talk of veg being eaten by catterpillars, all you need to do is put net over them. Amazon sell a huge roll very reasonably priced, last for years if you are careful.
Eric I've never grown black ones, but can you tell by feeling the tomato and give it a little twist and if it comes off easily it should be ripe.
Would be interested to hear what you think about the taste.
Ok ill try that let u no what they taste like KEF
