The end of the tomatoes
The last of the tomatoes are trying to ripen before the frost arrives. Many of these green little sungolds will, sadly, have to be nipped off the vine still green so that the plant's energy can concentrate on those that are closer to ripe.
As for the bigger tomato vines, they are providing some wonderfully tart, close to ripe, green tomatoes for that southern comfort, fried green tomatoes. We generally don't "fry" foods anymore, but a bit of olive or coconut oil in the pan to saute with will do just fine.
How is your garden ending the season?
