Green tomatoes

green toms

My efforts to save the tomatoes were too little, too late. The blight had spread to the rest of the crop very quickly despite my spraying them, so the whole lot has been pulled out. So depressing! I do at least have a bag full of green tomatoes (some of which are ripening okay in the sun) but the rest will go into making green tomato chutney. Never made it or tasted it before, but I’ll give it a go.

There are a few quite varied recipes on the internet, I quite like the sound of this one on My Tiny Plot. However, as you can see, I have over 4lb of toms, which is the amount needed in this Keith Floyd recipe, so maybe I’ll do a cross between the two.

Welcome to my allotment!

This Blessed Plot is a diary of the events, be it mishaps, successes or failures, of organically growing fruit and vegetables on an allotment in Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK. There are posts about what and how I grow, how I combat pests and diseases, and how I store and preserve my harvests, along with as many photos as possible. I hope you find some help or inspiration in these pages. You can also visit my little spin-off blog called From Plot to Plate where in 2015 my partner and I will give recipes for all the food we cook from the allotment. See the links below.

What’s on the plot right now?

Dwarf beans
Brussel Sprouts
Savoy Cabbages
Purple sprouting broccoli

I almost forgot to upload my #allotment #journal pages for #September. Full spread can be seen on my blog (link in profile). Quinces. We've had bad blight on the tree for the last 3 years, we gave it a hard prune in February and it seems to have helped. Still a touch of blight, but most of the fruit is untouched. So this harvest - about a third pictured here - is very welcome. Can't wait to make membrillo for Christmas presents. #quince #fruitgarden #homegrown #membrillo A recipe for beetroot, red onion and cranberry relish is on my blog: The little apple tree on our plot has finally bore fruit after 4 years. I'd almost given up on it. #apples #allotment #homegrown #fruitgarden
