Our first year as tomato farmers is not turning out so well.
We had a bumper crop of green tomatoes, but rather than ripening our tomatoes are rotting.
We’ve had a couple of frosts and tenderly covered the tomatoes with a tarp to protect them, but our care was apparently unnecessary. The plum tomatoes ripened and remained edible, but the big round tomatoes have become pockmarked with big spots of I-don’t-know-what.
So much for my plans for fabulous flavourful homemade tomato meals.
Anyone have any idea what went wrong?
