My Mystery Tomato Crop

October 9, 2013

In August, I posted about how some tomato plants had grown amongst my sugar snap peas; due, I think, to seeds making their way into the veg trough via my wormery.

2013-10-09 13.07.08Once I stopped removing the plants as suspected weeds, the tomatos grew, but the fruit never got the chance to ripen, as by then the cold weather was coming in. I picked a couple green, and brought them indoors to see if I could ripen them with a banana in a bag.

This worked, so I went outside today to pick the others – only a few, I thought. Until I started rummaging about in there, especially where the tomatos were hiding in the carrot-tops.

As a result, I have somewhat more than a few. Deciding whether to simply leave them in a bowl with other fruit, to ripen, or whether to try some of the green tomato recipes people have been telling me about.

    Over the last week, I have been happily eating these, as they ripen, one by one. In the end, I didn’t even need the banana, I simply left them in the metal bowl pictured, on the kitchen worktop.

    I have probably eaten a third of them, there are 3-4 that appear ripe enough for eating, and the rest have all got a bit of colour. So no green tomato chutney, it seems.
