It's the season on the tomato. Autumn is such a lovely time, all the work over the summer results in pumpkins, potatoes, onions being harvested, but in particular we're having a bumper harvest of tomatoes due to the hot summer. This year we've planted the ubiquitous Roma, plus Wonderlight (yellow), Red Climbing Fig, plus this marvellous round orange tomato with great flavour and a forgettable name. Thankfully it's tucked away in a diary somewhere to be resorted to after I finally give up all hope of bludgeoning my synapses for a response.
Apart from eating a lot of tomatoes, every time the oven's lit we dry them in the warming ovens, Trev eats them like lollies. On the stove top we're busy bottling them. Like bottles of summer sunshine
