    must get some of these perons! just checked edens and they have them. do you have fruit fly there tipsy? i was wondering how they would stand up to them. i bought a packet of tomatoes that were just called “tropic” but haven’t tried them yet. thought i would give them a go this summer. they are supposed to do better in the warmer climates. has anyone tried them?

    i have millions of little self seeded yellow toms up the back- nothing seems to bother them. i don’t know where they came from as i have never grown yellow tomatoes. i guess they were a throw back from some other toms i had up there. i just let them grow. i could save some seeds if anyone wants some.

    Hi again Sue E

    We do have fruit fly but haven’t had a problem with them outside of the poly tunnel. Even then they only appear if it’s been closed up for a few days because of wind or something.

    I do practice companion planting and usually have a large number of tansy, pennyroyal, catmints etc which probably help to keep the nasty little things at bay.

    What shape are your little yellow toms? I could be interested in a seed swap 😀

    Cheers

    will put some photos up for you as soon as it stops raining tipsy. they are just little round ones about the size of a large marble(wallnut?)- though there is the occasional one about the size of a golf ball. sue
