This is the first year I've grown tomatoes, and I transplanted them into the soil far too late, but I'm also a bit disappointed at their progress. I have a fair few fruits lower down and lots of yellow flowers from the middle upward (or did until last week's heavy hail storm knocked a lot of them off) but they seem to be growing more slowly than I expected, with none close to ripening yet, despite the good weather.
There must be something funny with my garden because even my daffs and tulips only flowered in May, despite being planted last September and October.
I'm looking forward to tasting my tomatoes though, and seeing if soup tastes better than using supermarket tomatoes.
