is the first ripe tomato of the season.



  1. How did you do that? My (Italian) neighbour gets pre-christmas tomatoes with plastic bag magic, but you’ve beaten him this year. Mine, as usual, will be January and onwards.

  2. I dunno! I’ve always been very jealous of the Italians who get their tomatoes ripe before Christmas. I’ve never done it before. This year, I planted seeds in winter, kept the seedlings inside, and planted them out mid-spring. Seemed to have worked!

  3. I’ve had ripe tomatoes in Essendon too this week. It’s the heat. Tomatoes love warm nights. I’ve never had tomatoes ripen before January before. We should make the most of these early joys. If Summer is a stinker they might be the only decent crop.
