It’s not tomato weather anymore

I have been kidding myself with the misguided theory that so long as there are tomatoes in the garden then there is still a claim to summer.  But the tomatoes have been a little manky of late, so I pulled them out.

You can watch this incredibly sad occasion here:

Come again soon – I’ve been doing some thinking, mostly because it is too cold to do anything else!

    1. Hi Buffy. We are blessed in that we can grow something all year long so while it may not be the glamorous tomatoes, there will still be a harvest of sorts.
      Cheers Sarah : o )

    1. Oh don’t feel too sad. I have onions to look forward too! Hooray for growing onions in the winter!
      (You have to look for the good where you can find it!)
      Cheers Sarah : o )

    1. Hi Linda. But I get to watch northern gardens burst into life from the comfort of my fire warmed living room without any of the hard work. It will be an enjoyable rest period. Cheers Sarah : o )

  1. Six months ago I read about the tomatoes getting going on your side of the world and felt the same sadness. Such a shame when autumn stops all the lovely summer stuff 🙁

    1. Hi Helen. If tomatoes lasted all year there would be no anticipation of that first sweet tomato, still warm from the sun, eaten right there in the garden…. hmmm I can taste it now!
      Cheers Sarah : o )

    1. Hi Julie. I still have a few more tomato plants scattered about the place. I have know idea how that happened. But the self seeded one in the flower garden is still doing marvelously – but I can’t say the same for the flowers under it that I was learning how to grow. I need to learn tomatoes can be weeds too! Such a sad time of year – but on the bright side it is only 6 weeks to the shortest day! Cheers Sarah : o )

  2. Haha, love it. I’ve parted with 3/4 of mine, but I’m clinging to the last batch. Still managing to get the odd red one come through and the green ones are getting made into various green things. It won’t be long before I’ll have to give in and accept that it’s in fact very close to winter!

    1. Hi Jen. It doesn’t seem like a proper garden without tomatoes in it. I still have a couple lurking about the place and even dug up a self seeded one and put it in the greenhouse!
      Cheers Sarah : o )
