Have had a relatively healthy but unproductive tomato plant on my window sill all summer; we got two perfectly nice tomatoes off it, but that was all, and I was just getting around to thinking about consigning it to winter oblivion and getting my window sill space back.
Then, aaargh! in the last week it's suddenly grown a whole lot of new flowers. Is there any chance at all it could still grow fruit this late in the year?
I would feel very mean about getting shot of it if there is a chance it could still be productive, but at the same time I don't want to have to keep walking round a massive great plant if it's just some crazed last hurrah that can never come to anything.
Maybe some small green tomatoes. The sun won't be strong enough to ripen anything I wouldn't have thought.
I sowed tomato seeds in Feb, had little plants inside the house in March, have lovingly nurtered them, hardened them off and had them outside. All about 6ft high, loads of flowers, not a single red tomato. All stayed green and they're 7 months old! Bastards.
