I picked another 1kg 210g (2lb 10oz in "old money") of these cherry ones today! That doesn't include the 500g I must have eaten while picking them!!! LOL! As I've said, repeatedly, I eat them like sweets!!!

I also picked 4kg 900g (10lb 12oz in "old money") of the Money Maker & Alicante tomatoes today! Though according to Gerry we now have blight on our tomatoes. He told me he had noticed it on at least 1, possibly, 2 plants & sprayed them immediately. Till he pointed it out to me on Wednesday I didn't know what blight looks like. I've grown tomatoes on my balconies in Spain & the UK for many years but have never had any problems with them.

Lovely lot of tomatoes Balcony. Maybe you need some tomato recipes now ie tomato and chilli chutney, tomato sauces, tomato relish, tomato and basil soup is tasty too :-)

I think you are right, Richard! Only nothing with vinegar in it as my wife can't stand it! You'll have to give me the recipes.

I did fry quite a few tomatoes the other day when I made our lunch. It's incredible just how many you need to make a little tomato sauce!
