The last tomato of summer


As I suggested just over a month ago, it's been a race between the advance of autumn and the reddening of my tomatoes.

Well, with Halloween just two days away, I've admitted defeat and collected my last tomatoes this afternoon. I have started pulling up their plants, partly to make room for the tulip bulbs I want to plant.

So here it is, the last tomato of summer.

And if you wonder why I've given up on the rest, this is why: they are looking seasonally spooky.

They are going to go brown before they go red. Sad that my most promising-looking green tomatoes have gone this way. Oh well, maybe next year...
