Tomato variety suggestions

Posted: 17/08/2014 at 00:54
If you can't find Pink Flamingo seeds, then save some yourself from this year's crop. The Real Seeds site gives full instructions on how to save seed.

I find beefsteak varieties have one drawback; they are very large. Some varieties have excellent flavour but personally I prefer to grow normal-sized varieties as they are not prone to cracking.

Don't pick them yet, it's far too early. They must be good and black and ripe before you pick them.

By all means put them in the freezer for a few days, it saves having to prick them as the skins split.

What do you mean by 'sets.' I presume they are normal-sized onions, not 'set' size.

Please confirm these are greens of some type...

I think the third one is ragwort. Best not give it to the hens.

Wind Damaged Hedge

Your hedge seems to be mainly ivy. You can cut as much as you want from it, then it will grow up again. In fact it will do it more good than harm.
