My friend called me over on the weekend, gave me a bag and said go and raid the tomatoes! She planted heaps and they've all ripened at once.

Yummmm :D

Our cherry tomatos are doing great guns and are really sweet in flavour too.

But the toms are green. We have been picking those with a tinge just to try and get more to the same stage. But its a long process.

Pumpkins and watermelons are non-existant for us this year.

Planted rockmelons though and we have 8 which are nearly there, but not quite.

Capsicans are feral, fruit everywhere and ripening at such a pace we are now preserving them.

And the basil went to seed :(

Oh well - second last day of summer and its only going to get colder as we head to the end of the week - pickles recipes that I can try anyone?

Have plenty from last year which was a nice recipe but would love to try someone's favourite for a difference.

We are in the same boat - lots of lovely, luscious plants, quite a few fruit but nothing even remotely looking like turning red. If nothing happens soon we will be uprooting them and replanting in the soon-to-be greenhouse. Where they will probably die anyway....

We're consoling ourselves with the reasonably good plum, blackberry, red currant and apple season we've had. And hopefully we'll get some quinces, medlars and crabapples before too long. But we really look forward to our home grown tomatoes each year :(

Mind you my zucchinis have been a bit of a failure this year due to powdery mildew, but not all hope is lost as it looks like they are getting healthy again after a severe cropping of mouldy leaves ...


Hi there. Get yourself some cheap powdered milk, make it up diluted (I make it about 1/2 strength) and use a small sprayer to spray the leaves. Wont kill the mildew that's there, but will stop it spreading.

The warm weather last week means I have about 10kg of ripe-uns inside, but now because of the rain the ones that are ripening are starting to split... can't win!
