Mine fruit into November but then I have artificial help with the greenhouse.

Also got my first cucumber fruit and the first few peppers and chillis. Aubergines are close to flowering too.

Mine are doing pretty well. I think I might end up with my first ripe fruit within 2 weeks.

3 inches in diameter. 2 of them. It's about the volume of soil and clumpy bits of organic matter. I can fill a wheelbarrow with what gets washed out the greenhouse.

I have a drain hole and it gets clogged up extremely quickly. There is a lot of muck that comes out of the yearly pressure washing. Easier to wash it all out the door.

I could cut some of the side-shoots off my tomato plants and get them going for you if you have anyone passing or near?
