...the twin twisters are starting to colour up. Another bad year for tomatoes, last year was too cold, this year it's way too dry. Regardless, I should be having some tomato and mayo sandwiches very soon!!!
...some are already twisted about half of 45 degress. Supporting them this way takes some of the height away but they're starting to look pretty cool. Hard to capture with the phone, thanks for looking.

...an update on a great vortex of vines! Very difficult to capture by phone, they look much better in person. I've had visits from two horned tomato worms that mowed down a couple of my plants but they are no longer with us, the worms I mean. My tallest one is about 14 feet and has turned close to 180 degrees in the twister. Tomato and mayo season is just about over as they are showing a great dislike for the recent cool nights. Climate change is causing great havoc across the globe, and in my garden. Who knows what will happen next year. Thanks for looking.
My disease resistant seeds from Veyseys (large cherry-sweet and small ordinary tomato-good strong tomato flavour, both determinate) did very well this summer. For our small family we've had lots of tomatoes, enough for 2 meals a day. Still going strong but slowing down.
How are everyone’s tomatoes doing this year? It has not been a good year for mine, I would say they are half the size they should be right now. Friends near us are reporting the same. I wonder if it is due to the extended cold and wetness this year?
