Growing Your Own Tomatoes

Home grown sun ripened tomatoes have a far better aroma and taste than the supermarket tomatoes that have been forced to grow quickly.
Also commercially grown tomatoes are likely to have been exposed to assorted pesticides.
I have four tomato plants and I don’t use pesticides. I estimate that the total crop this year will be about 25kg of fruit. which will end up in salads, roasted in the oven or made into pasta sauce.
In the UK basic tomatoes are about £1.75 a kg so 25kg would cost about £43.75.
The higher quality tomatoes, which would closer to the home grown variety, cost about £5 a kg, so 25kg would cost about £125.00
