Its always pleasing when you start to see that you might get some tomatoes this year. It feels earlier than normal but, looking back through the calendar, its neither the earliest (nor the latest).
This year the first ones I’ve noticed are: Bloody Butcher, Kbits Ukranian and Mountain Magic. The Mountain Magic are an F2 (saved seed from an F1 Hybrid) which I’ve tried to grow before without success. However, this year, because I don’t have the allotment any more, I’m growing them in the greenhouse. I’ve again got two distinct plants, one potato leafed and one regular leafed. They’re both growing strongly. Its the potato leafed version which is the first to fruit. The other is flowering but no obvious fruit yet.
