before we moved i made a commitment to growing as many as i could to exploit the full length of the season. well .... we moved and that didn't happen. <sigh>
but ... when you move to the sub-tropics your world takes on a whole different perspective. i smile when i think of the guys at Milkwood who are just now putting in their tomato's because out in mudgee they are just heading out of the frosts. here ... well .... all i can say is that it's already sweltering. which means .... GREAT tomato growing weather!!! woohoo ... happy dance time!
so before the season started, i did this great little chart to show what tomato's can be grown to extend your season as much as possible. check it out here. i would be pulling a complete furfy to say that i have pulled off having these grow. in total truth ... i have only one of these types growing ... the Rouge de Marmande ....
as you can see, these are growing in pots, happily, on my patio. but i also have two others .... a lovely genovasy which gives fabulous medium sized fruit. and some yellow current .... lovely little yellow cherry type tomato's ..... have heaps of these.
|these are the Genovasy|
|yummy yellow currant|
i have no doubt that a few others will get tested out as well. but i have to remember that we are in a rental and only have a certain amount of space.
wait till we get on our land and have a passata making party! what fun that will be!
