Today, I sadly had to bid farewell to my tomato plants.
They were all doing so beautifully and many still had flowers coming, but thanks to the very strong winds overnight and torrential rain, the time had come to say goodbye, as they just weren’t going to recover from this latest bout of weather.
I’d become quite attached to my little ‘babies’, having nurtured them from seedlings.
They were producing lots of fruit and were really tasty.
Now, I have a windowsill full of green tomatoes, which I’m hoping will ripen. If not, I shall be making a lot of green tomato chutney!
