Mmmmmm...'maters!


Yumm-O as Rachel Ray would say!  Tomatoes are a'comin' on the vine.  These cooler evening temps helped the blooms set and now they are growing like mad, hoping to beat the first frost.  Here that's normally not until early December, but we've had unseasonably cold temps at night this week - into the 40s at my house, so they'd better grow quickly!
They are pretty tasty -- not quite as sweet as last year's but we are enjoying them.

See that little clump of green near the middle of the photo?  That is the LAST of the Malabar spinach -- my DH and I cut off all the vines threatening to take over our garden and our house.  We fed them to the appreciative deer and they will get that last clump tonight for dinner.  Then it will be done!  Whew!
