Tomato-a-holics-anonymous

 
Forgive me ...
it has been several 'minutes' since my last confession. 
I couldn't stand it anymore ... 30 odd tomato plants outside the front door sagging with fruit was getting boring. It's like being stuck at traffic lights ... Red, Orange, Green, Red, Orange, Green. The little blighters were practically throwing themselves off the plants in a desperate tomato-suicidal leap to get my attention as I went by. Everytime I walked out the front door, there would be a handful on the floor waiting to trip me up or worse, be squidged under foot.
Enough was enough ... out came the scythe.
These are some of the good 'uns, there was a tray-load of 'dodgy' looking dudes that I chucked out &  I've picked another tray of 'greenies' since these snaps were taken. They're now sunning themselves indoors but there are still another half dozen plants out the back banging on the windows to come in ... Ignore them.

I wish I was near and could have your extras. Mine didn't do well this year.

I take it you know how to make tomato sauce?? If not, I published a blogpost on the subject yesterday, which you might like to look at...
I was attracted to your blog by its title - I am a person who like to keep the garden neat and tidy too.
