Tomatoes are out!

The weather has been nice and warm so I decided to plant out my first batch of tomatoes.  There were 27 in all, of the following varieties:

San Marzano
Grosse Lisse
Yellow Pear
Green Grape
Black Russian

I still have Green Zebra, Tigerella & Red Pear growing on. I’ve also sown some Roma and more Grosse Lisse. The Purple Russian didn’t germinate. Perhaps it’s just as well!

I’ll sun-dry the cherry/grape types and freeze the San Marzano for winter’s pasta sauce. The rest we’ll eat fresh.

In addition, I’ve put two San Marzano in a water-wicking box to see how they go.

I hope the neighbours like tomatoes!
