    Framberries

    I bought 3 plants and one of them produced 2 very small fruits. As for the rest...

    They are taking over the cold frame but not a flower or fruit in sight!

    Ten tomato plants, grown from seeds or given as gifts. Fed, watered, hardened off, copper taped, more stakes than a Hammer horror film, etc. - and here is my tomato harvest for 2017. Look close: it's laughing at me!!!
