October Tomato Harvest

We have been experiencing some very warm weather here in the south of England these past few weeks. It has been so warm that mother nature has been rather confused with plants and trees blooming for the second time this year, believing they are entering the spring season. There have been so many birds singing in the hedgerows and swallows darting through the evening sky.

In our garden we still have Sweetpeas, Dahlias, Cosmos and an abundance of tomatoes which is rather unusual in Mid-October. There are still green tomatoes on the vines, so if the warmth continues I should be gathering another harvest next week.




This is the second harvest this week and I have great plans for the scarlet jewels, some are destined for my favourite roasted tomato soup and the rest will be made into a sweet and spicy relish.

Happy Friday sweethearts
