I have just finished harvesting the last of my tomatoes for this year - all grown outside in pots or grow bags against a sunny south west facing wall. I never grow tomatoes in my greenhouse. My neighbour does though and each year her crop is never as big as mine, not sure why as I would of thought it would be the other way around
Excellent crops all summer long from Alicante, Aisla Craig, Principe Borghese and Sweet Millions, however, I would not grow those varieties again. Next year will go back to Moneymaker as they have been the tastiest ones I have ever tried. And maybe a beef tomato and a new cherry tom too.
ommthree, sorry to hear of your tom's not working out this year. Blight can make the leaves on your plant mottled and start to curl up, the stems and branches can start to go brownish and your unripe green fruit will start de-composing. You would definately know it if you saw it. Don't get disheartened, I can't grow things here that my mum can 2 miles away! Sometimes it is just down to weather, location etc
