Garbage Tomato 2 – Monday 9.7.09


Fall weather is starting to creep in. It’s getting a little cooler and darker in New Jersey, but that didn’t stop my garbage tomato this week. I picked 10 tomatoes, but my mother stole them all, hell hath no fury like an Italian woman making pasta sauce.

Despite the weather starting to change, my tomato keeps growing, still plenty of yellow flowers and little green tomatoes popping up. So I should be picking for at least another month, plus by then my stowaway acorn squash will be ready too.
