    :waa: Hi there I am kind of sad this morning, I went to the garden and picked the last of my tomatoes this morning. I know that seasons change but it is still sad to see all the work you have done through out the summer be over for the year, it is kinda like a loss, because my garden means so much to me. They were still alittle green but I went ahead and picked them because it is getting very cold here at night and I was afraid that it frost and they would be hurt. But my husband is going to be happy tonight because I am going to role them in some corn meal and fry them he loves them that way. Man they are sure pretty though.

    Well although picking the last tomatoe maybe a bit of a bummer at least you can look foreward to the spring and plan next years garden. BTW the fried tomatoes sound good :)

    Still got some tomatoes, WE are going to pull up the vine with the tomatoes on it and hang it in the basement. They were $2.49 per lb. in the grocery store today.Looking forward to spring.
