I saw some of those. Threatened to buy a sunflower yellow one for over £200!!!!!There is some nice slimline water butts that also act as flower planters if you look around .
Look good but quite expensive last time I searched on gurgle .
I tend to agree, depending on where you live, and the demographic of your neighbours, and would your stately pile look like a Wayne and waynetta slum, with a large green plastic container plonked at the side of your house for all to see, vandalize and puncture (for shits and giggles) ? On the premise that if its not nailed down,and can be seen, some twat will steal it, its probably not such a good idea.His Betterness thinks it downmarket to put water butts at the front of the house, or even at the side if they can be seen from the road.
Thanks. The plant is dying back, so I have pulled the limbs off with the tomatoes still on and hung them up in the 'sun'.Needs about a week of sunny weather . Even if they just turn orange , pick them when the plant starts dying back bring them in and put them in a bowl with a banana .
Soon turn red .
I have likely well over a thousand roma’s that have been full sized since August, nothing is turning red really, so far only picked a bushel of pink ones so far that l froze. As for horn worms, once they’re in your area that’s it, will never get rid of them permanently, but their insides are a nice shade of neon green when you squash them....Not sure if you’ve dealt with them before, but if there’s one, there’s a lot more of the little bastards, l just spray now and haven’t had a problem this year.My garden update.
The two small Roma plants did exceedingly well. Huge harvest 100's of perfect ones, a lot not ripening and a lot turned rotten and tossed.
The four Beefsteak plants did fair to middling. Plenty still ripening and a lot feeding the squirrels.
I had a bit of blight to keep me busy trimming and I also found this.....

...that scared the crap out of me so I bashed its head in with a trowel.
Started off well and we managed to grab quite a few but again blight took hold and I ended up ripping it all out.
My Beetroots, Spring Onions, or Radish never took hold. As HLD said earlier probably far to wet for them ever to do well.
The Lettuce did well and made quite a few salads.
The Peppers did well especially the small Red Buggers that are dammed hot but taste great in my homemade Salsa and Curries.
As usual the vast majority of the Harvest was given away by the wife because, well reasons that I know not.
All in all, not a great season because of the wet weather.
The positive side being that after buying the seeds and partially grown plants we probably saved $4.20 cents for our summer beer budget.
