Ta Dah!

The holy grail of vegetable gardening here in Melbourne, ripe tomatoes before Christmas! The plant that these came from was grown in a large pot, so I imagine that the roots have been quite warm of late. The plants in the garden beds however are only just beginning to flower, so the fruit won't be ripe until much later. I grew the plants from seed that I saved from the previous year and unfortunately didn't sow it until a bit late, so it will be well into 2018 before we are eating tomatoes from those plants.
