This time of year is idle for all types of vegetable and flowers. My plants are away from direct rain. Tomatoes can be grown round the year here. Only one must water them properly.@zigs I'm wondering if Manx Marvels may have been the wrong type of tomato seed to send Grouie, knowing they prefer a cooler climate. It's interesting to see the results Grouie has had though.
@grouie, does the heat in your climate differ much during the course of a year and I presume you have monsoon time too, does that last very long please? Could you grow tomatoes all year round? I'm thinking that I could send you some other tomato seeds to try that would be happier in your climate.
