We've got tomatoes (again)

For a while, I thought my tomato plants were dying. The leaves were drying up and the fruits were getting smaller and smaller. Some were the size of peas!

When my son told me we've got tomatoes, I almost didn't believe him. Imagine my surprise when I saw one plant filled with fruits. I must admit that I've been neglecting them lately. All I did was to pour some 'fishy water' (saved from washing fresh fish from the market) into the pot every Sunday.

This was how our grannies fertilise their plants in the past and it must have been quite effective.

The pack of seeds from Royal Seeds has proven to be the right one for our climate. This is the indeterminate type ('vining type') which is supposed to keep growing until it gets killed by frost. But since it is hot here all year round, I wonder how long they will keep growing.

I've had mine for almost 6 months now and they're still going strong. I'm so happy with my tomatoes!


  1. Wow..what type of tomato are these?..I also planted some and I guess it's the same as yours..I'm guessing it's Roma Red..what do you think?
