There is often a competition amongst friends and other gardeners in your street.
There was much joy (to me) when I picked my first on 14 December.
Yesterday I picked another 6.
I'm not boasting, but it is now starting to feel like Christmas.
No more tasteless tomatoes bought from the shop.
Nothing beats a home grown tomato dressed with basil leaves, cracked pepper and a drizzle of good olive oil.
A healthy breakfast with toast!
