a good yield, BBQ!

I have found that the little varieties serve me best...and less waste.

It was a very good year...and it continues!

What a wonderful sight, Brenda! I have to say, I'm a bit envious…had to pick all my tomatoes the other day because frost was expected sometime this week (tonight according to the forecast). Almost all are still green…we've only had some Big Beef and some cherry tomatoes ripen on the vine this year. Other people I've spoken to have said the same thing, lots of big tomatoes but not ripening. It was a fantastic summer for the garden too. Last year, our first frost was after October 1st!

Hi Donna:
We've had a great growing season too, particularly the tomatoes! Thank you for sending the seeds from Mortgage Lifter. This is a great tomato; large, firm, great texture, and good to eat! Also, one tomato is enough for a salad for two! Not as large as Brandywine, but still a very large heavy tomato.
I've already frozen 50 San Marzano and there's probably still another 50 on the vines .. three plants! I've also made a couple of batches of tomato sauce using a number of different tomatoes. We like putting in a few 'blacks' as we like the intense depth of flavour and colour they add.
We're getting a cold front coming in, (from your way I suppose :roll:), but no frost is forecast .. yet, so hopefully the rest of the developing tomatoes will carry on for another week or so!

What a beautiful sight Brenda. Just as pretty as any bouquet of flowers.
Like Donna, I am almost envious of your harvest this year. The biggest disappointment was the bud drop on the Kumato this year, as I had to go through many obstacles to actually get the seed for them. I guess I will have to do it all again...lol
The weather here was just not conducive for tomatoe growth this year (other than a few "Roma" type and a small tumbler) and now I am going to have to hit farmers markets to make up the loss.
Great photos, and thanks for sharing them.
