It's not for lack of trying ... but my crop of tomatoes just didn't have the right mix of sunny days, summer heat, and a long enough growing season this year. Just last week our temps were in the 80's (F) and my hopes were high that the tomatoes would all ripen at once. As you can see, just a few took the time to ripen. Not sure if the majority of green ones will do much ... any ideas on aiding the ripening process once picked?

Weekend outlook: We could have a little snow ... but I'm not counting on it.

Fried green tomatoes, anyone?

I had three plants and ended up with 3 tomatoes. None are red yet. :( Maybe it just wasn't a good year for tomatoes??

Thank you for visiting me today.

Hey, this would work for a Ruby Tuesday photo - you've got a little red there. :D
