Tomato's...progress is very slow this year. i've only 4-5 tom's ripe. but i do have good numbers..the alisa craig are huge tom's. and the gardeners delight are always a good cropper..i have one truss which split into 4 seperate truss's.. each containing 10 toms..amazing.

Your Tomatoes look great, the best I have seen this year. I will be trying Gardeners Delight next year.

You are the only one I have heard of with Ripe Tomatoes, don't know what you are doing but it is working!!

Looking good there Nozebleed!

I'm starting to get plenty of cherry tomatoes but my main toms are still a good bit off. They had better hurry the f up! Cucumber city now, yours look the same as mine. Marketmore?

Hey Sp. yeah marketmore..i've had little success with cucumber in the past..i find the plants have to reach 4ft or so before they produce a decent fruit. lack of sun doesn't help. how are things on the allotment?

I must try and grab some photos today seeing that the rain has decided to stay away for once.

Things ok. Garlic failed and onions are looking worse for wear (all yellow and not fully bulbed up). TONS of strawberries/raspberries/gooseberries/black currants. Fruit must like the wet. Spuds are getting a bit blighty. Good crop of shallots / ton of peas so far / few broadbeans / lettuces / and plenty of french beans/cucs/carrots/courgette from the tunnel. The tunnel is the biggest success so far. Tempted to build another!

decided to build a new raised bed for some herbs,strawberry's and maybe a fruit bush or 2..not quite sure yet. also tom's have really started to ripen up..now picking fresh tom's on a daily basis. pulled half my shallots up..trying to dry them in the greenhouse at the minute. most of my shallots went to seed this year so i'll give them away to be eaten instead of storing.
