Bringing in the Toms

Against all expectations my tomatoes are turning red(dish). Mostly every year they turn green and then the plant dies or the slugs eat them. My mum didn't expect them to turn red either so reserved all of the green ones in advance to freeze and use in her delicious veg curries.

Looks like I'll have enough for the next few meals (we use toms in everything). The green ones in the basket have fallen off the vine (themselves according to the kids) so they will go to mum


  1. Mash'Allah sis, you ahd a good year for your toms. Mine didn;t show this year. :(
    Enjoy your toms!

  2. Assalam-alaikam Sister Muslimah,
    I think it was my turn, I got a few green ones last year and that was it. So maybe you'll get lots more next year insh'Allah. Oh, and I changed the place I grew them to a sunnier spot, probably that helped.
