The Last Tomato?

I'm heading out to the beach farm for what probably is the last visit this October or even November. The Fed wants us to remove all items this year so they can straighten the paths, or at least that is what they're saying. My wood and net tomato cages will come out, then. The tomato beds will be on the opposite side next year. If I grow garlic at the beach farm, it will grow where the tomatoes did these last two years.

This last tomato, Black Russian I believe, is still quite firm. They were rotting awfully fast during those last weeks of August into September. Fruit flies were abundant. I ate the second to last yesterday and found it perfect.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
