The harvests from the garden may not be as abundant as they were two months ago but things are still chugging along and we are enjoying it!

This weekend I pulled out the first tomato plant for Winter.  It was the yellow pear which was sending out suckers like crazy once I pruned the top because it was getting to be 10 feet tall.  The weight of the plant was about to break the stake and take the cage down so I determined it was best to say goodbye since the flavor of these this year have been so-so.  I did however collect all the full sized green tomatoes to find uses for instead of wasting them by throwing them away.

  1. If those green tomatoes were actually mature enough - they should ripen nicely off the vine if you keep them in a warm place inside and just check them periodically to remove any that spoil etc.
