Beefsteak tomato success

We grew three varieties of tomatoes this year/  The beefsteak ones have been delicious to eat and cook really well. This is the largest one so far and it weighed 1 lb on its own.

Some more on the next plant.  These 3 weighed 1 lb together.

The gardeners' delight plants are doing well. I am not sure about the Italian plum cooking ones.  They are a bit dry.  I am going to leave them on the plants to get over ripe to see if they improve.

Hope your tomatoes are coming thick and fast.


  1. I grew beef steak too and they too have been tasty. However I've had a lot of fruit that fused together and ripening at different times. STRANGE!

  2. Some of mine are strange - I think it was that early struggle with pollination when it was a bit cool


Afternoon off

Left all the gardening undone yesterday and headed out  for the afternoon in our small boat.  Went up the River Wissey for about 4 miles. ...
