  • we cant grow tomatoes here unless they are in a glass house which i dont have. we potentially may have managed to grow some outdoors this summer as it was so freaky hot but i didnt have any plants in. i dont think the horse or the rabbits would have eaten them either. i should prob pay more attention next year. in fact, i will try to do more veges next year. i do have a decent supply of wild watercress, puha, native spinach and also LOL seaweed i can fossick. plus some southern glasswort or samphire to the gourmet crowd. if i put in some maori potatoes and some garlic, i pretty much am done.

          tomatoes are a tropical plant, even a light freeze will kill them, so I only grow them spring/sumer. I have a greenhouse, but it is an "unheated" house so if temps get below freezing at night it can/will freeze in the house. most of the stuff you listed, I would have to look up, as those names are unfamiliar to me. From the pics I've seen of NZ... very green and lush, so I suspect the land is very fertile, and growing things there would be easy.

            lol... smuggling? If the price is right.... though I can't imagine that there would be a big market for blackmarket tomatoes and the like.

            • Yeah, not quite as hardcore as illicit booze or drugs, you could be waiting a long time for someone to score some toms!

                  I've grown many heirloom tomatoes... I love them.
                  But one of my favorites is a little one, not cherry just small (like palm sized) but in longish clusters kind of like a cherry, called Juane Flamme.
                  Good LORDSSS I tell you it's GOOD!
                  Orange/gold outside, red inside... strong bold tomato flavor.
                  Makes a brilliant ORANGE sauce... Though. I only ever manages that once.
                  Hell, they rarely made it in the house. I tended to shove them into my mouth, whole and hot and decadent, right out in the yard.

                  Crap. Now I want more of them, and will not have the. this year.
                  Plan ahead: order seeds!

                      Tomato with a zip.
                      I think that descriptions 3-4oz fruits is a bit generous... maybe a few 4oz. mostly 2-3oz.
                      It's a dryer tomato... not hugely water/juicy. But glorious IMO. The flavor concentrates in the juices it does have.

                      • Once upon a time in a remote kingdom, the new king decided that he should be able to see his entire kingdom. He commanded his troops to build a third floor on his grass hut. The men worked very hard, and soon the king had what was clearly the tallest home on the island. Then the men pushed and shoved the heavy throne all the way to the top floor.

                        The king was very satisfied with his new throne room. He would sit high above his kingdom gazing with satisfaction at all that he ruled over. Until one day when there was a terrible sound and the king in the throne crashed through the floor and then through the second floor and crashed to the bottom floor. The king was dead.

                        And the moral of the story is: People who live in grass houses shouldn't stow thrones.
