Tomatoes in the window
Put your tomatoes in a bowl in the kitchen, not in the fridge. There are several reasons for this.
1. An excuse to go an buy a pretty bowl from the Op Shop - a slightly cracked one with a good personality will work just fine. This bowl's Italian, and has a "P" logo on the bottom, but I don't know the company name. Great colour!
2. They look pretty and people with think you are rustic and interesting. You can get this effect from growing herbs too, but this is quicker and unlikely to attract bugs.
3. A tomato grower promised me they would keep well and not go watery. She'd know!
