Gothic Looking Tomato

I've been lucky this year with the homegrown tomatoes in the greenhouse.

Last year we lost loads to blight, this year they have been coming on strong and rather beautiful too.   
Here is one dark Gothic looking beauty that I am very proud of that I felt i had to share it on it in its own glory.

I am sharing this with JibberJabber UK for Sunday Snap anMy Sunday Photo hosted by One Dad 3 Girls.

  2. My tomatoes have been terrible this year. I grew all the plants from seed, got flowers but not a single tomato! I love it when you can grow something different from what you can buy in the supermarkets.

    1. I agree its amazing what you can grow from seed and not get from the supermarket, although my tomatoes are good - the rest of the veg , esp the brassicas have been decimated

      :) I have tried to leave a comment on your blog a few times, but unsure about Disqus, not familiar with it - can you reassure me, as it would be nice to repay the compliment of coming by on your blog too. I do gander - but haven't been able to leave a comment

  6. Hey we have those in our greenhouse too, one weighed About 600g! I find they make a lovely, tangy marinara sauce despite the duller colour when cooked. What do you make with yours?

    1. Shame about the colour when cooked. We have been eating them fresh mostly in a side salad, but I do have cooking plans for the others when harvested
