Yesterday was my first "free" day of my vacation, and since the weather was still decent, I thought it would be a good time to tackle my outdoor chores.
I got my little patio oasis packed away for the winter, got a nice warm layer of mulch down around all the roses, as well as on the front and side garden
But the big job was getting the tomato jungle out before winter
But I sat down and started at it. Pulling limb by limb, and removing tomatoes as I went, I finally got it all out of there.
In then end, I got several more ripe ones, and half a tub of green ones
I read that it's not the sun that ripens the tomatoes, but warmth. So, I've got these babies in the nice warm kitchen, and we'll see if they turn red. If so, I'm thinking I might make a batch of my Mom's famous sweet chili sauce.
