It seems that tomatoes have been generally slow to ripen this summer in our corner of the world. I've been reassured at least by other bloggers around Victoria who also commented on their still green tomatoes (such as here & here) ... I was starting to worry I'd somehow mucked up in my tomato patch nurturing this season!
But finally we have tomatoes ripe and ready to eat every day! The ones pictured above are Amish Paste (a fleshy variety similar to Roma's), Tiger Stripe (juicy & sweet, perfect for salads) and Brown Berries (the sweetest of all the cherry tomatoes I've tried). No Roma's ready yet, but I'm hoping they'll ripen in a big glut so I can make some sauce with them!
