    Just picked the bushes clean a few days ago. We already have plenty of green tomatoes froze up, so these are wrapped and waiting to ripen on their own. Officially closed down the garden this week.

    I only put out 2 tomatoe plants this year. I dont have the room where I'm at. I put out 1 cherry, and one beefsteak hybrid. I put the big one out really late. the cherry plant is dead and ready to be pulled. the beefsteak is just now in it's prime. I've never seen a tomatoe plant this big and green around here this late in the year..

    You know, I haven't even tended to my plants in weeks. I got disgusted because they just weren't doing any good, so I just gave up on them. Then, went around the corner of the house today & had 3 ripe tomatoes!! They were fairly small, but they looked good...no bugs or chewed up spots on them, so I brought them in. I may just have a 'mater sandwich tomorrow!!
