My Veg! (Mostly Tomatoes..)

Every year I try to grow some veg of some kind. This year the operation has been a little scaled back. I've been a bit too busy to grow lots of stuff, so I just stuck to hassle-free crop of tomatoes (and a couple of chilli plants, and some potatoes)...

The fruits have started ripening now, and I harvested my first little cherry tom the other day. Naturally I was very excited!

Scoffed these two red ones with my dinner - they were lovely

I'm always amazed when I look at before and after photos of how much the plants have grown over the course of the year. I've not even been growing them for that long this year, and  still they've overwhelmed their space!

Plants arrive early June and I pot them up

Early July - Within a month they've grown up!

Late August - First cherry tomatoes ripen

A good crop!
