Yes! l know the shop varieties are mainly artificially grown in large greenhouses,importe from the canaries and with a solution that seems to alter the skins texture that taste like cardboard.One of the varieties we're growing are the tumbling ones, they are in a large hanging basket and should be ready to eat soon. I love tomatoes and eat lots of tomatoes because of how good they are for our Livers ( after my intake of alcohol), the shop varieties here are all so tasteless, but when in Turkey I buy kilos of them and have them every day, they are so good. My favourite is to grill them sprinkle with basil and balsamic vinegar on brown bread toasted, blummin yummy. I'm drooling now.

lt's nice to hear from you,on how you have got the bug in growing your own.lt gives one a sense of achievment with rewards from nature that are always free if used correctly.
Sunny Seasider: I love tomatoes. My mother fried them, drained the grease out of the pan, poured in cold tea, added salt & pepper, let the tea come to the boil and reduce. Result: slushy tomatoes in a lovely dippy gravy for fresh bread and butter. Delicious with fried egg, sausages, black & white pudding.
