Fenton Friday: Farewell to Tomato Season
|Red Currant tomatoes|
I yanked out a few tomato plants that were similarly breaking apart and getting in the way. One 'Sun Gold' tomato plant pulled out totally intact, so I took that home to hang in my sunroom to see if the remaining green fruits on it will indeed still ripen up, as I had read they would.
The 'Red Currant' tomatoes I have left alone. They are still producing tons of fruit and we are due for a warm spell next week, so I'll let them stay in until we get a real frost that kills them off.
Elsewhere in the garden plot, the interns re-seeded the radishes and some of the salad greens, where the first round had failed to germinate.
How is your edible garden growing?
About Fenton Friday:
Every Friday during the growing season, I'll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the Fenton Street Community Garden just across the street from my house. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 5th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.)
