tomato plant 100's and 1000's on the balcony of the study (first floor) - 080810

These tomatoes have an abundance of fruits, but they are all very tiny.
Although this balcony is north-facing, the tomatoes do well over there, and last year too.
We only put them there because we want to plant lots of plants, and there is no space left anywhere else.

We have lots of different sorts. I find these a bit too tiny. But Sweet Million is ever so sweet and a lot bigger (still a small tomato). With a lot of fruits too. This year we also tried Sungold, a small yellow tomato, also very sweet, almost a fruit, but if it is too ripe, the flesh doesn't stay as firm as the others (at least I think).
I'll add a few photos of them.

We are already eating them, but these ones up on the balcony don't get red as quickly as the ones that are in the garden (even though they are not even in the greenhouse!). We have one plant (100's and 1000's) in the greenhouse too. We also are eating the Sungold and Sweet Million varieties already. We sowed seeds from tomatoes we bought (at Tesco's) in February, small Roma type tomatoes, but with an excellent flavour, with a lot of firm flesh. They are doing well too, but are getting ripe slowly. They seem to turn a darkish red. I'll take a photo in close-up, so you'll be able to see the funny form (a point at the end).
And then we sowed big roma tomatoes from seeds from tomatoes from my niece. They are still green up to now.
I'll leave you now, I still have to finish my GoY diary before tomorrow morning. I could send it via email (living in Belgium). It will get late (and that after having had all our three grandchildren at our home today ;-)

Am growing "Sungold", too, this year for first time. thank Goodness you say that the fruits are small - thought it was something I am doing wrong! :-)))

So did we, in the beginning. ;-)

On the packet they look small too, but they also look red, whereas they are certainly meant to be orangey yellow, I suppose. Why call them Sungold otherwise?!!?
If you leave them too long, I find they are less firm...
