    Are your tomatoes in the garden still decent?

    Ours are about at the end of the line.

    Enjoy! Ours did not do squat this year so we yanked them out 2 weeks ago. Don't know what the problem was, they just did not produce tomatoes. Lucious green vines with tons of blooms. It was an odd year here.

    Our zucchini was like that. I got some at the very beginning and then 2 mos of nothing. I just picked the first one in 2 mos yesterday. I wonder if they got some kind of disease. I have a friend that said the same thing, a few at the beginning of summer and then nothing.
    My tomatoes are finally turning red. We have had a cold summer with not enough heat and the tomatoes were really late this year.

    Yes they are still doing good, but they are coming towards the end. My plants won't be producing any more, but there is still quite a bit that needs to ripen. I have a recipe for green tomato mincemeat that I just love! I am thinking I will pick most of the green ones and make that. I did a few years ago and it is the best mincemeat I have ever had. It called for suet but I left that out--I am glad I did.

    Good for you! I just told DH the other day that we need to can some tomatoes since we are out of them and I'm fussy when it comes to spaghetti sauce.

    Great job! :thumbup:

    We had a cold summer last year and our tomatoes didn't do very well at all. I ended up just pulling the plants up. But this year is great! It is just now turning cool, I think from the hurricane that hit Nova Scotia. We always get the tail winds from hurricanes that hit along the east coast all down through Texas. This is the first time I have known Nova Scotia to get one but it brought in a lot of cold air with it. We are suppose to get more warm weather. But I think I am just going to make mincemeat out of the green ones I have left.

    Yeah, I understand. That was ours last year. Very disappointing.
