These are the plants I grew from seeds squished out of a squashy cherry tomato at the beginning of lockdown, if anyone remembers that.
They were already pretty huge before we recently went away for 9 days but were absolutely rampant on our return. I had someone in to water but he didn’t know about side shoots so I’ve taken off dozens, some of them already 8 or 10 inches long.
I wish I knew what variety they are - there are huge trusses, many 3-fingered, so to speak, with masses of fruit set already, and plenty that look big enough to start ripening.
Probably too good to be true and I’ll be seeing blight or rot soon! But I’ve already printed off a recipe for green tomato chutney, in case I have enough later.
I think they’re beginning to show signs of a magnesium deficiency (despite the feed I use supposedly containing it) so off to look for Epsom Salts today, since I’ve read that spraying foliage with dilute ES is the easiest way - has anyone tried this?
I just hope they have it in my local Boots.
