tomato rripening

They will start to turn a paler green first, that's the first sign of ripening, then they will start developing colour.

At this time of year leave them to ripen on the plant - later in the season when temperatures drop you can pick them and bring them indoors to ripen - usually it's mid to late September before I do that.

Which Scabiosa are you growing - the annual or perennial?

Folks - there are over 1,000 threads on this forum on this subject  - the majority of them contain much anger and unpleasantness  - it's certainly a subject that arouses strong emotions.  Thre are some things in this world about which we will never agree.

Glad you've got some gardening done Wonky - every time I went outside I was reminded of that Travis song ... you know the one?    so I decided to do some baking - got the cake tins lined, the oven hot and the ingredients weighed out ......... and the sun shone and dried up all the rain  

Now that the cake's nearly baked we've got heavy black clouds overhead again - I'm giving up and I'm going to sit on the sofa with rubbish telly and my knitting - after all, I'm supposed to be knitting this for our holiday in September and time's moving on ..........
