I planted tomatoes very late in the season this year, mainly because it was a last ditch attempt to have some for salsa and tomato sauce. I planted 3 plants on June 27th: One Better Boy, One Big Boy, and One Roma. By the time I planted we were well into summer and none of the flowers produced any fruit.
The plants survived the heat of summer and once the temperatures cooled in early September they really started putting out fruit. I have waited almost two months for them to vine ripen and although a few of them have, I think the temps are just too cool now for that to happen.
So tonight I decided to pick the best ones from the plants. I am going to make some fried green tomatoes and let the rest ripen indoors. The total haul in the large basket below was 19 pounds. There are still more on the plants, but I will let them go until the first frost approaches.
