Will we ever get tomatoes?

Its been a slow and strange year for tomatoes, with some people wondering if they'll ever ripen.

To get the best flavour, pick your tomatoes when they've just "pinned". This is when the blossom end (the bit away from the stem) has just changed colour, to pink, yellow, orange . . . depending on the variety. Then put them in a warmish place, somewhere in the kitchen is good, but not in direct sunlight. Within a few days they'll ripen naturally with a great flavour.

At right are today's batch (the pale ones in the bowl) together with some brandywine and yellow taxi ones that have been sitting for a few days.
