Self-Sufficiency

For a short time, we are entirely self-sufficient in tomatoes. One plant, popped in at Labour weekend, is now producing beyond our needs.


So bountiful is the cropping we are actually giving away our fine, practically organic, picking. The secret to our success is the 'no fuss' approach. This involves tying the tomato up once when it is new, then totally losing interest in any further intervention. Remove no laterals and allow the plant to sprawl wherever it wants to. The plant itself is possibly a Guiness Book contender for its size, but modesty prevents us from submitting it.

  1. Well done. I suspect lurking behind the modesty is a green finger.
