Welcome to the Jungle

This year i decided i would grow Tomatoes inside the greenhouse instead of outside (like i did last year). I decided to grow 6 different varietys which were ‘tigerella’, ‘Gardeners’ Delight’, ‘Black Cherry’, ‘Red Cherry’, ‘Money Maker’ and ‘Alisa Craig’. I sowed them back in March and whithin a few weeks they had germinated and thanks to the unusally warm early spring days they grew quickly. When they were big enough i planted them into grow bags and they grew and grew until i had to stake them in. I was happy with their progress until a few weeks ago when gardening mags proclaimed that it was about time to harvest, as they showed large, plump, red tomatoes in pictures which was all well and good until i looked at my plants which only just had buds on them! I was getting worried until under the growth i found these little green gems. Now i know its abit late but i always leave my veg more time just incase they surprise me, fingers crossed.

Whats your tomato harvest been like this year ?
