the mystery plant unveils itself, I dunno how,where or when it got in my pots or trays, its drfo grew from seed but never looked what it turned out to be, i've grown these from seeds before so i thought i'd have recongnised it, but i did't untill it flowered,

I've eaten my first home grown tomato of the year,Mmmm, there's nothing else like it, you can't buy that taste,it has to come straight off the vine, Its not just the taste,its a trip down memory lane, the taste brings with it the memories of going in my dads greenhouse and picking and eating his tomatoes, Its well worth the 6 months growing time, Very Happy Very Happy

Ha ha, I love that retro style vid. Everyone I know has had a bad year with the tomatoes, very very slow to flow, fruit and ripen. I had someone give me three cucumbers before any of his tomatoes were even ready - I've never known that!

I've had a good year, all my beds have been productive. My Broad Beans were to die for, especially now I have learned how to double pod/cook them. Red Onions were also fabulous - they were actually better than the yellow skinned ones. Potatoes were lovely - Maris Peer are an all rounder really - I steamed, boiled, fried and roasted them, they even froze well after I roasted them in fat.

Peas were great, but never made it to the table because I ate some everyday, I have also sown some late (Aug) and they are just podding up now. My sprouts are coming on a treat, I have eaten some already, also Calabrese and Sprouting Broccoli. Had some Runner Beans, but they swell quickly and I only like them super tender. French Beans weren't so good, so I will ask advice about these.

I am currently harvesting my Hazelnuts which have fallen from the tree - I will eat these at Christmas.
