Clipe & ACK (if you are lurking nearby)

living on the South Downs, I can confirm that the climate here is not appropriate as a Tomatosphere, without manmade greenhouse assistance. 1976 was a bumper year for juicy sun ripened tomatoes, but by late summer of 1977 it was only a bumper season for making green tomato chutney, out of unripened fruit.

We have all been assured of greenhouse gas assistance in growing tomatoes outside for this century, but this has failed to materialise in vast tomato crops.

If you want to grow tomatoes outside successfully, I recommend you pick cherry tomatoes. The cherries ripen more easily into juicy low hanging fruit, for easier picking.

@Pcar

I'll defer to golf charlie's expertise on making hay with the green-blob's newly discovered tomatosphere.

@clipe,

What war?

No war I'm in - only debate of views, beliefs and opinions.

Plus injecting some humour :)

" Suggests something about ACK's own thoughts on self-worth"

Leave me out of this war, Pcar. Not interested.

That made me laugh too. Suggests something about ACK's own thoughts on self-worth.

@stewgreen,

Did you do a screen-grab?

"Tomatosphere"

That made me laugh.

It has a ring to it - considering some Lewticular players.

Let's hope it catches on.

it might well be the particular mix of urban and rural in my neck of the woods and the mostly poor trunk road infrastructure - but in one episode I followed one group (10/12? I didn't count) of Saturday morning cyclists back in the summer - they held me up for over 20 minutes along wide lanes on Salisbury Plain I deliberately kept a fair distance back, in a higher gear / low rpm and they kept a low, dawdling pedal rhythm and regularly scowled back at me - I got the very distinct impression that they resented my intrusion onto "their" bit of road.

It seems pretty common for particularly weekend cyclists around the lanes seem to appear sour and resentful of any other traffic. I get to hear about altercations with cyclists too regularly from too diverse a set of drivers for it imho - to be simple reaction to me in a van....
