CR tomatoes?

You might remember that subscribers received their February issue in a biodegradable bag that came with a packet of tomato seeds. The idea was that you could stick the bag in the ground or pot and use it to grow tomatoes in. Seven months on, check out these babies

Here’s what the Februrary issue looked like for subscribers. It also came with a packet of these, (courtesy of image library Stock Food – thank you)

and we asked you to do this

Of course I couldn’t expect our subscribers to do something that I wasn’t prepared to have a go at myself, so I dutifully planted mine out in a pot. The bag, which was made from Harmless-Compost, part of a range of compostable packaging products from Cyberpac, is now long-gone, having rotted away into our garden, but the tomatoes are looking pretty damned good.

Did anyone else have any luck? If so, please send me pictures of your crop and I will add them to this post.

We often provide subscribers with extras such as this – interesting packaging, prints from the Photography Annual etc. If you’d like to subscribe, please go here

UPDATE: @MatDolphin on Twitter informs us that his interestingly-named toms are well:

“Thanks to @CreativeReview Adolf & Myra are doing nicely » http://twitpic.com/2m389n

These just in from James Kirby – look like they need a little sun…
