    I think Jungle Jane may be saving those...see post #1. I'm trying to keep it updated! hopefully she'll pop in and confirm.

    It was the first to ripen although Rambling Red Stripe was close behind it.
    Latah, Alaskan Fancy and Matina are almost ripe. Like the look of Alaskan Fancy - can't remember who donated the seeds.
    Interesting, latah and rambling red stripe were both the same time for me. Sandpoint I've had 1, matina nearly there. Lucky Leprechaun I've had maybe 4 or 5. Though this plant is strange- same as last year, it got really congested....and I need to keep chopping bits out.

    Photo taken a couple of weeks ago. There's no room for the plant to breath, I'm taking of leaves all over the place...but it is early. One to harvest early on and bin as soon as the others kick in.

    I've got black icicle & black cherry growing well not sure what my black Russians doing at the moment,it's quite slow compared with the others,no flowers yet? I don't mind if someone else saves those seeds? I've got other varieties I'm saving too if all goes well.

    I am having an absolute disaster. I have blight in the greenhouse. I've taken most of the leaves off, and am crossing fingers AND toes, but I am guessing all the plants will have to go. Soon.

    Which will mean I am out this year. *cries*

    None. It's north-facing so toms don't work. I have a tiny sliver of hope, but am also quite gutted. This year is really challenging.
