@ClarePindex I wish I had your tomato skills! My tomatoes also ripened late last year - too late - and so they are now fruiting in the last chance saloon. Trouble is, no greenhouse, and if I put the polytunnel up too early the wind here will rip it to shreds!

Absolutely no joy posting a photo. “Publish” greyed out in the iOS app and perpetual “uploading” via the web. Hope it’s not another 5 years before I manage this.
