Even after using huge large quantities of tomatoes in all sorts of ways (including a large batch of sauce which is now in the freezer for Winter use), there is still well over 6kgs of fruit ripening in the Dining Room:
Even though the yield has been much reduced because of the blight and the poor weather, I think my plants have done well. I had a total of 13 plants, of 10 different varieties. In order to "sing their praises" a bit I am posting here a picture of each type:
Star performer: Orkado. Big, strong plants with masses of large, smooth, tasty fruit. Withstood the blight well.
San Marzano. Distinctively blunt, block-shaped fruits. Firm flesh, few seeds. Good for cooking. The most prolific fruiter of my four plum tomato types, but set its fruit very late so lost many of them to the blight.
Next year I think I will probably grow more examples of fewer varieties. Definitely I'll try to get "Orkado" again, though I may not be able to find it since it was billed as an experimental variety. I hope it becomes widely available.
Note: all my tomatoes were grown from seed, and grown outdoors.
