PICK TOMATOES DAILY
Make sure all your tomato plants get a consistent supply of water while the fruit is developing. Too much water and the skins will split or the plants will develop blossom end rot (brown patches at the base); too little and they’ll fail to develop at all.
Feed your tomatoes with liquid food every week if possible for the best crops. You might notice that the oldest leaves on your tomatoes (the ones at the bottom) are starting to turn yellow and look unhealthy.
Don’t panic. Just use a sharp, clean pair of secateurs to snip them off. Removing the lower leaves also lets sunlight in to ripen the fruit and improves air circulation around your plants, reducing the risk of blight. Don’t take off too much foliage though. If tomatoes are fully exposed to the sun, their skins can burn (resulting in sun scald).
Sow another crop of beans and salad greens (beans pic). Sow annual herbs like Italian parsley, coriander and basil every fortnight too. That way you’ll have a constant supply right through summer and well into autumn.
