    Default First ripe tomato

    The first of my 100s and 1000s tomatoes has ripened fully today! That must be some sort of record - it is for me anyway.

    Why doesn't the HTML work?

    Realise I should have put this in the early tomato thread - sorry! Took a sleeping pill last night and am still a bit foggy.

    I tried jogging, but I couldn't keep the ice in my glass.

    At the beginning of Feb. They started life on a sunny windowsill then migrated to the conservatory when big enough. We have had a lot of sunny days, even when it was cold, so they have had plenty of light from the word go.

    Well done! I know I would be so chuffed to get a first. My italian plum toms have loads of set fruit but still green.
