anyone have red tomatoes?

BarriedaleNick:
Yes and yes!  There is a canning factory a few miles away and they are all going to be canned - every last one.  Sometimes the lorries ooze juice which contributes to the road hazard.  Yesterday on my ride I must have seen at least 30 of these lorries, the amount of toms here is staggering.

I never expected them to ramble about like that, just my UK assumption that they are trained like ours. Well actually sort of trained, they have a mind of their own.

BarriedaleNick:
They are all determinate varieties which are bred specifically for growing in this style and for pasting.  They plant them in rows about 3-4ft apart but they are spaced about 4 inches apart so they sort of form a long bush that supports itself.  When it harvest time they die back little and collapse a bit like in the pic.  There is no way they could train indeterminate varieties as there are thousands of acres of the things..

Gods, yes, my greenhouse is like Day of the Triffids!

This is the corner near my house on the way to the cannery!
