Tomato Blossom Bags

I've started taking off some of the blossom bags from my tomato plants as some fruit are getting a bit too big to stay any longer.

I must have well over 100 bags in use as I know I've bought 75 new ones in the last fortnight and I feel sure I had 100 last year. Three small fruit are enough to fill a medium bag, so it's important that they come off as soon as possible after fruit set.

I picked a bowlful of Polar Star tomatoes from the two plants in the hothouse this morning and they are still changing colour so will get a lot more before they've finished producing.
