Hurray! We sowed our tomato seeds on Friday. After a long discussion and much poring over seed catalogues and a fairly thorough post-mortem of last year's performance, the Tomato Team (which consists of James, my Dad, and me) made our decision on what to grow this year. And the surprise result is a clean sweep for the Reds! We felt that the White Tomasol was a complete washout, both in cropping terms and in flavour, the Black from Tula was tasty, but wasn't juicy enough and tended to go soft very quickly, while Sungold was alright but the skins were a shade tough. So - here is what we are growing this year - all organic
And here they are steaming away nicely in their cosy propagator.
Stop Press!!! This morning when we lifted the lid pf the propagator we found a tiny green shoot peeking through (see small red arrow) . It is a San Marzano - later on a Lylia Cerissett appreared too! I just love the excitement and buzz of watching seeds grow.
