I have loads of full size tomatoes but just not ripening. Approx. 10% did ripen up enough to eat. Same thing I wonder, just too late getting them in?

Did they even flower, earthway? What varieties did you sow?

May is a bit late alright but you should still have some tomatoes on them, just struggling to ripen in time... Though in fairness I think it has been a bad year for everyone, not much sunshine around for ripening...

I planted 3 tomato plants. They were starting to flower when I put them in my new greenhouse in early July. I can safely say I got 2 tomatoes off one of them , none off one and two that are still green on one. A friend of my mine who would usually be inundated with tomatoes and giving them away Is still waiting for his to ripen. Bad year for tomatoes

you need to hand pollinate tomatoes or leave doors open to allow bumblebees in to pollinate, bumble bee population down this year due to inclement weather, looks like you will have to go for chutney this year.
