Tomatoes in October

Something that hasn’t yet changed – we are still harvesting tomatoes! Not many. Last week the harvest was only 128 pounds. San Marzano and Juliet paste tomatoes apparently don’t mind the chilly temperatures as much as our heirlooms and hybrids. Next week,the tomatoes along with the other summer crops that have stopped producing (eggplant, peppers, basil) will be disked and the beds planted in winter rye.
