      If I had a fiver for every wee mistake of that sort of nature, I wouldn't need to go back to work. Some of them are already ripe, or as near as makes no difference, and the others will definitely ripen to a useable level.

      Put it this way - even ripened indoors, they will still taste much better than the ones you buy in the supermarket.

        @Verdun I once snipped through a pot hanger. Was thinking this is a tough stem and then found out why :doh:
