Tomato time – well, almost

Icy Creek tomatoes

Icy Creek tomatoes

Being Grand Final day (and what an awesome outcome) and exceptionally balmy for late September, we’ve planted some tomato seeds in trays in the hope of transplanting them into the warming soil by Melbourne Cup week in early November. If anyone has had any luck with any of these varieties, please let me know.

This year we’re trying our luck with Aunt Rubys Green,  Shimmeig Creg Elfies, Palmwoods, Stupice, Arcadia, and Ida Gold. The latter is meant to grow well in colder climes, which is good for us, as our place is about 500m above sea level, and can still get wintry right up until Christmas.
