This is my second year growing tomatoes. Last year I had a decent harvest but, of course, every year my aim is to improve upon the previous year. Last year my goal was to get to grips with training the tomato plant and pinching out side shoots - tasks that seem odd but apparently have to be done. This year my aim is to produce a higher yield. Below is a snapshot of how the tomatoes are progressing to date.
I'm growing two varieties:
Tomato (Red Cherry), Mr Fothergill's seeds; sown indoor 8 April 2012.
Tomato 'Gardener's Delight', Thompson Morgan seeds; sown indoor 8 April 2012.
Above and below -six days later a tomato appears.
|My supports are simply bamboo canes tied together.|
