    Weekly tomato pick again today, 9ozs of cherry toms from the polytunnel and 14ozs of Shirleys from those ripening indoors.

    Not much left :frown:

      Mine are looking Ok for the time of year, so far avoided blight and very little botrytis. With a bit of luck they should keep going till November:

        Only 10ozs this week, a few days ago thought I'd only get about 5 or six tomatoes as they're ripening so slowly in the polytunnel. Time to bring the the last ones indoors.

          Who's going to cut up all their remaining home grown tomatoes today trying to replicate that?

                Had to cut down some plants today as getting badly affected by botrytis.
                All that is left:

                            Dog had my last homegrown tomato this morning.

                            Only 5 days before a new thread and a couple of months before my first tomato seeds go in.
