Today I went out and picked all the remaining green tomatoes off my plant, 15 in all. The weather is too cold and the plant too worn down to sustain them anymore. After more than 5 months of growing, it is time to put this year’s garbage tomato to bed.
There are still plenty of little yellow flowers all over it, but they’re a pipe dream and aren’t going anywhere. So this weekend I’ll be taking down my garbage tomato and preparing the hole in the ground for next year’s crop. Stay tuned, I’ll show you.
