But to the tomatoes. We have our fingers crossed and Doug does a regular copper spray and so far they are doing really well. Last year I froze a lot by just removing the core, cutting them in half and bagging in bags that took roughly the same size as a tin of tomatoes. I was really pleased with the result which I used in mince and casseroles so I am doing the same again this year. We have been picking mainly Russian Red but yesterday picked our first Black Krim.
The Russian Red are doing well. It is like that right along the row.
The Black Krim alongside the Russian Red. We ate it last night and it was delicious. I picked another couple today.
In Nelson at the top of the South Island they have major fires. Apparently it all started with a spark from some farm machinery.
