Wohoo, we have red tomatoes

Yes, that is exactly what I said when I saw them, and I threw my arms up in the air in excitement.

The battle with caterpillars and blight is definitely on, but some serious companion planting with basil, coriander, tansy and marigolds is so far holding off the need for nasty chemicals-knock on wood.

I took the first photo one day before the official start of summer and it shows the tomatoes ripening, and the photograph taken 5 days later shows how quickly they ripen in to an amazing, juicy red tomato.
