Adventures in the garden: tomatoes

I didn't have much luck with tomatoes this year. I started them too late and by the time they caught up there wasn't enough sunshine to turn them a beautiful red.

I've now picked what tomatoes hadn't been mauled by slugs and pests and pulled the plants up. The little collection above is what I was left with. I'm going to try and ripen them indoors by popping them in a brown paper bag on a sunny windowsill. It's suppose to work a treat but we'll see.

Lessons learnt this year? Plant these sweet beauties earlier in a prime, sunny spot!
