Tomatoes in New Zealand

Our last two AirBnB hosts have had lovely tomatoes in their gardens. Cherry tomatoes trained up trellises, regular tomatoes in hothouses, etc.

Click on the photos to see them full-size.

Our current Wellington host said her parents grow enough potatoes (5 different varieties) in their beach house in Taranaki for the entire year. They also grow all sorts of beans, greens, etc. She has wonderful herbs in her garden in addition to the tomatoes. She mentioned a community garden up on the hill above Wellington.
Maybe I can visit ~ what fun it is to explore new places and learn a bit about how both big ag and small scale gardens function.
We’ve so far just seen a small market garden region, in the southern part of Taranaki, with most of the agricultural land we’ve seen so far on the North Island devoted to cattle and sheep, along with some mystery cole crop.
