Glorious harvest

Lighting not great, but quick visit to the tunnel yielded bounty. Gazpacho on the menu tonight, will have to fund a suitable end for the squash and aubergines

Black trifele tomato review

Red medium sized tomato, with a hint of purple. Good texture, reasonable flavour. Ripened inside, so need to try growing again to give it a chance.

Black cherry tomato

Large for a cherry, dark colour. Better grown in a hanging basket. Sweet! Great in salads.

Clear pink tomato

Large pink tomato. Great flavour and texture.

Danish export

Medium tomato. Prolific. Tasty, tangy, a little mealy. Almost like an apple.

Squash roundup

De nice a ronde, trailing green marrow and patty pan the best producers so far. The pickling cucumbers are very bitter. Crookneck all very small so far. Lots of male flowers being produced, so need to get more manure.

So far, winter squash are not prolific. One fruit per plant. Pumpkin growing like crazy, no fruit.

Garden pearl tomato review

A small pinkish tomato. Seeds all germinated, loads of healthy plants. Plenty of fruits per plant. Tomatoes go from green to a pearly colour before turning a pinkish red. Taste so far is unexceptional. First to ripen. Great for hanging baskets and pots, plant does not get big.
