growing tomatoes

The first tomatoes are now nearly full size and the basil is starting to take off. Watering is still every day as the temperature has been high for early summer, some days I don't bother especially when its cooler. I noticed some of the basil leave had been eaten and suspected snails so have been adding some commercial snail bait to kill them. A couple of times I have used a tomato fungal dust on the plants, not that it was really necessary, I was just concerned that there might of been more than the snail problem so acted on it. As the tomatoes grow I have added more stakes to help hold the weight of the fruit. We are going to be eating tomatoes very soon I feel !
