The sun has at last come to south west France and for several days now we have been enjoying temperatures in the lower to mid thirties.
My tomato plants all have plenty of fruit on them and the young tomatoes are now beginning to ripen in the sunshine. Today, I picked my first tomato this year. It is a local variety called Marmande.
This one is about 2" (50mm) diameter although there are some much larger fruit ripening on the vine. I also have a couple of red cherry tomato plants and a golden cherry tomato plant with a lot of fruit which will be ripening very soon.
