The last tomato

There are lots of competitions for the first tomato, but where is the reward for the last tomato of the year. (Not that there aren't lots of uses for green tomatoes.)

The night temperatures are starting to drop down low but I am still hoping these lemon boys will ripen on the vine.

Homegrown tomatoes for the holidays....

"Cynthia, you might ask: "How is it that you have ripe tomatoes on Christmas day?" The answer is that this tomato was picked two months ago, in mid October, after our first mild frost."

Another last tomato story

The other picture is collard greens in their natural habitat. This neighbor's garden is on my morning walk.
