Harry Vetch is the secret. No not the person, but the substance. https://www.ars.usda.gov/is/tom/
You also have to pluck (not the RSS reader) the first flowers. https://www.organicgardening.com/feature/0,7518,s1-5-16-193,00.html

Even with a greenhouse that sad kind of thing happens to me occasionally...

I'm new to growing tomatoes myself and hubby hasn't been too successful preivoiusly in spite of living in the sunny (and much warmer) South of England. This year I've put 2 in a growbag with a pepper for company, but I have enclosed the growbag in a plastic tent, which consists of a thick wire frame and a zipped plastic cover. In spite of being on our sheltered patio it has needed good ballast when it got windy, mind. Anyway they look healthy so far, with a number of flowers. Hubby has pinched out the side shoots regularly. The greenpepper is not so happy as slugs and snails seem to find it rather tasty.

The photo seems to suggest your tomatoes are in smallish pots covered in plastic bags. If so I imagine their roots have become a bit cramped and they are not getting the best ventillation, but as I said, I'm no expert and I am managing to grow broad beans in less soil than I'd have imagined possible. I'm pretty sure tomatoes are uhappy in damp conditions with poor ventillation, though.

Actually not in plastic (behind a window) but small pots. Will look for new pots today. I pinched off my much anticipated new yellow flowers (heartwrenching). What's this about side shoots? What defines a side shoot? I need to disect my poor tomato plants more?

Good advice on growing tomatoes can be found here https://www.hdra.org.uk/todo_now/veg_gard_now.htm

that big red tomato is going to taste so good

Debbie

you know it. Thank you for all your advice! Tomato update: I have yet to transplant to bigger pots. I need to figure out how to do this without them falling off the windowsill, as I have limited window space, but plan to do that today. The new location seems to have worked as the only ones that are now struggling are the ones I have left in the same room. My efforts at removing the flowers seem to have helped as I already have new buds coming up

Reading Big Red Tomato reminded me of why I love you. You hold on to dreams until they can be realized or God kindly requests they be let go. You never stop learning, and trying, and growing. You are a special kind of som'in'. I miss you.

I'm smiling while reading this. For years I tried to make a gingerbread house from scratch at Christmas time. I was a kid and I'd bug my mom to let me try it. We tried to make a gingerbread house maybe 5 or 6 years in a row. Never once did I get it right. It would always fall apart. I could never get the frosting thick enough to hold it together. My goal was an edible yet beautiful gingerbread house. On my quest I drove my mom up the wall! A few years ago my mom bought me a gingerbread making kit for Christmas as an inside joke.
I do know what you mean though about having certain things you want to master. I have an on-going list of creative adventures that I want to try. The list alone will keep me going until I'm well over 100 years old!

Debbie

Kristine,I love that. I did a gingerbread house a few years ago with my kids. It did stick together but it was far from straight. My initial instinct was to make it tidy with perfect little rows of candy but the child in me won and it ended up a lot more "Gaudi" style with explosions of candy everywhere. We brought it to a party and the child in everyone, even the most proper, seemed to leap and it was devoured almost instantly. Thanks for reminding me.

I want to keep trying to master new things til the day I die because when I stop learning seems like the time I will stop living.

Karin

So what happened to your tomatoes? Is there a happy ending?

Debbie

Well, They seem to be thriving though not beautifully.I have small green tomatoes. I will be able to jump for joy if they will indeed turn red. I have had green tomatoes before but never before red.

So Saccharomyces Boulardii is made use of particularly as piece of an
anti-fungal approach because of this inclination to assistance manage candida.
But this is no not long ago launched supplement, but a yeast with a lengthy and appealing record.

Blasdales Hi to all the Blasdales! I'm currently rencsrehiag my family tree and think I may have discovered a link with the Blasdale family in Nottingham. My fathers' name is Michael Hallam-Clarke (and his father was George Hallam-Clarke) and I'd had no luck with name My father has recently found a limited family tree that his father George drew up and it appears that Georges' father (my great grandfather) was an Arthur Blasdale from Nottingham. We think he was married to a Beatrice Mary Adams (her maiden name?) and they had 7 children John Arthur, Edward Adams, Roland Harry, James Blasdale, Harold (nickname Jelly), George (my grandfather) and Beatrice Jennifer (who we think was known as Jenny and married a vicar called Aggasi). At some point the family name changed to Clarke and we believe Arthur (and family) moved to Ramsgate in Kent where he was the Town Clerk. Does this tie into any existing Blasdale tree?
