Heirloom tomatoes

A mixed bag of tomatoes, red and yellow

At this time of year, the tomato crop is in full swing, and the great thing about planting heirloom tomatoes is the variety. At any given point, our fruit bowl is full of ripening tomatoes, red and yellow, small and large. We pluck them off the plants as soon as they start to colour up, to reduce the crop losses to caterpillars. It doesn’t take long for them to ripen properly, and then into our cooking…

In addition to eating them fresh, we’ve also been storing them for future use, via bottles of:

  • roast tomato passata
  • tomato ketchup
  • cherry tomato & onion relish
