Urban Farm 2014 – July 27th First Tomato!

Very exciting times down on the Urban Farm. My first tomato is about a day off being ready. It is a ‘Moneymaker’ variety and is grown for reliable high yields. This also means the toms are now giving off a gas in the greenhouse called ethylene. This is a naturally occurring gas essential for ripening and means they should all start ripening at a fast rate now!

'Moneymaker' tomato. The first tomato of the season for me!

The courgettes are now in full flow, too.
