I accidentally grew tomatoes!!
I'll be honest I'm not much of a gardener. A few low maintenance shrubs, a few flowers in some tubs, that's about it. I do compost all my peelings and vegetable leftovers from the kitchen and somehow I seem to have grown quite a nice tomato vine this year, probably because I rinsed out the compost bin and tipped it on the flower bed. It grew to five or six feet and it was pretty untidy but we got some good fruit from it. I have read some tips online about how to train it into a single stem plant next year. But now that we have reached the end of this year's growing season what do I do with it now? It's sort of hanging on the ground with some blackened leaves and some fruit that never ripened. Should I hack it all down, or dig it up or what? Will it grow back from the same root again or should I bury some of the fruit to provide a new starting point? Grateful for any advice to a complete newbie!!
