Tomato plants coming along nicely! by janemartin

Tomato plants coming along nicely!

Not quite sure at what stage we should be picking these, some people say take them off green and ripen indoors. Some say leave on until fully ripe? I don't know the answer!
Nice shot. Personaly I leave them until there are red and ready to eat.

I do like seeing the flowers - then the bees are needed?

Nice close up shot. I love the backlighting which highlights all the little hairs on the plant.

Love the light on this shot, you can see all the little hairs. Definitely leave them until they are fully ripe, then pick them off and eat them straight away. The flavour will be intense

Lovely shot of soon to be lovely tomatoes. We've been eating ours for a couple of weeks now so I don't think it will be too long before you are too.

@davemockford wow! You must have started yours of early. Is the first year we've grown them. I am looking forward to picking them!

@pdulis thank you Peter much appreciated.

Amazing shot, those back lit hairs are wonderful. I'm a big believer in leaving on the vine to ripen, I'm sure they will have a sweeter flavour. Do half and half!

fav!

great shot

I would leave it on the stalk until at least a touch of pink, but preferably leave on until fully red.
August 5th, 2016  
I'd leave until going red but that's only my preference don't actually know what you should do!

Great shot.
