I may have a few spare tomato plants if you want them (tiny tim-cherry tomatoes). At the moment they are on my kitchen window sill about 3-4 leaves big. I think there wil be more than I have room for. Evidently they are suitable to grow in containers or baskets and you do not need to pinch out the side shoots or use canes! Also may have some lambs lettuce to go with them. All grown from a mini seed set that I brought form woolies.
Thanks Jac, that's very kind but I think we're alright.
We were doing very well on the tomato score, until we put them outside a fortnight ago (we were going on hol's. Thought they'd bake if we left them inside. Thought frosts were over in our SE1 microclimate.) Unfortunately they have at least partially succumbed to frost, but thankfully we did have some others coming along indoors in a seed tray so we've got replacements.
Strangely the cucumber plants, and the tomatoes in baskets were fine. It was just the "upright" tom's that suffered.
Maybe we can have a tomato taste-off in a couple of months' time.

Julie, you haven't seen my superscooter yet, have you?
It's fully equipped for all cargo carrying duties (except pizza's, before you start making jokes). A sack of compost just bungee-cords onto the back seat with no problems. Even makes comfy backrest for the driver.
Canes might be a bit more tricky, with the length and all, but I was thinking of tying them on near my screen somehow and using them to get that Mods-on-a-Bank-Holiday-flags-and-foxtails-on-the-aerials sort of look. I was actually thinking of going to B&Q tonight. I can ride back via Long Lane if you think it's going to be that funny.....
