The tomato plant has been moved indoors. It is in the kitchen now and hopefully those little tomatoes can keep growing now they are more sheltered. I am determined to make myself a bloody salad this autumn (and as I have to walk sideways in that kitchen now, they better be worth it.)
What gave me hope was that the suicidal tomato has been changing colours. I just left it on the windowsill and, much to my amazement (and the amusement of friends who came over for dinner), it is red now. I was informed that of course it has ripened; same thing that happens with fruit and veg you buy a bit on the green side at the shops. Those have also been picked prior to their ideal consumption time and keep ripening while on the move in their crates, at the greengrocer's, at home in my fruit bowl. Do'h. Stupid ninja.
Anyway... The mini tomato saga continues. Watch this space (should you be into this sort of nonsensical waste of your time, that is.) Ta.
