It is the last day of official summer in my part of the world.
And I still don't have any ripe tomatoes (pout.) There's a
somewhat reasonable quantity of green ones. "Moneymaker" breed,
chosen at random in the spring.
There were problems this season with the weather. Incessant,
obnoxious wind (even worse than usual for this town.) Dark.
Cold. I had to keep them indoors way beyond Labour Weekend (late
October - almost end of spring.) And was still worried for their
health later. I live in a place known for it's sucky weather,
but this season has been infused with a bonus of extra suckage.
Fortunately, the tomatoes have been getting much better sun and
heat lately, and are looking OK.
But, I'm thinking of how to start eating sooner next year.
I am thinking of taking a bit of extra effort to get cherry
tomato seedlings next year. Since they are smaller, do they
mature sooner? Are cherries the answer?
