Mine survived last winter in the ground.

Tomato Black Russian?

I had the same experience though it was general rot rather than BER. Flavour was fantastic, but very few fruits per plant. The fruits were very heavy and bent the branch.

Won't grow them again.

Storing Potatoes

Commercially potatoes are stored in refrigerated bins ( or whatever) just above freezing. Is your kitchen that cold? The fridge might be a better place for small quantities.

Feathers stuck in a potato and hung from a long bamboo might work too.

Huh! I think I live in a not-spot! Perhaps I need a Revenue boat.

I'll tell you what happened to mine. I planted them in bags which I left outside. All went well until the plants got blight. It's put me off, I won't bother again.

Edd, you are getting very aerated. This is the FRUIT and Veg forum. Isn't that the right place to ask about jam?

Some people say that cane sugar comes to setting point more easily than beet sugar; so look for Fairtrade sugar.

Don't muck about with the proportion of sugar too much, it is a preservative. If you are worried about the amount of sugar, eat less jam!

They will have 'decided' to flower way back, they will not form a flower stalk now if they haven't already.

The leaves will bend over naturally, don't help them. If you need an onion for the kitchen take one.

Finally the roots will die back and the onion will no longer be anchored to the soil.

Dry them off and use any onions which had a flower stalk first as they will not store well.
