This is my first tomato to ripen for the season. Can’t remember the variety.
Haven’t had a veggie garden for a few years. Don’t think I’m going to tell the kids 😁3004A9E0-2898-426E-A7AD-BD752E093FAA.jpeg

Your tomatoes are well in advance of mine. All I have is flowers and few tiny baby tomatoes starting.

It has been very cool weather here as of late which has not helped the vegetables at all.

I thought I was late starting.
I’m quite close to Lake Macquarie so I think that helps with warmth overnight

The Cherry tomatoes have been finished here for a while now, they pop up and are hardy and grow themselves .

Saying that ,someone up the road gave me a few of their mid size tomatoes this week from their garden . So it depends on the variety .

if your a gardener like me , you need hardy plants that are not too pedantic , a couple things I’ve found useful in the tropics are Taro and Aibika , taking advice from papua new guineans and pacific islanders , they've well and truly done their sustainability , resilience research throughout time , so i borrow their wisdom and there is something substantial to throw in the pot for a boil up .

Definitely like the hardy plants. Plants round here get watered when they’re planted and often get left to fend for themselves.
I’ll have to try Taro and Aibika.
