November Tomatoes

tomato1With the first cold night, I covered my volunteer Cherry Tomato vine with cheese cloth. Until Tuesday evening, I left the cheesecloth on the tomato vine 24/7. I checked the tomatoes and was delighted to see they’re turning. It won’t be long until we have some fresh tomatoes in November.tomato4I’m going to leave the cheese cloth half-off of the vine until the weather turns cold again.

I figured it up and this is the second year on the volunteer tomatoes in that small bed, so it’s a wonder that the vine grew healthy at all. I hope the tomatoes have a good taste to them.

I am beyond tickled about these November tomatoes.
What a rare treat they are.

  1. wow! That is great! I picked all mine, and am letting them ripen on the windowsill, but that last ones are slow to ripen and so are mealy, like the grocery store tomatoes. Next year I wont; be so quick to put the garden to bed. 🙂

  2. I am not a fan of tomatoes but I do enjoy growing them so I can can them and make salsa and tomato sauce with them. It is a lot of effort making homemade salsa and sauce, what with all the veggies that need to be chopped and then peeling all the tomatoes etc but it’s so very worth it! Hopefully those late tomatoes are tasty so however you use them will be delicious!

      Salsa and sauces sound mighty tasty. Tomatoes are a versatile fruit indeed. I got my fingers crossed for the Nov. tomatoes. 🙂

      I wish I had a volunteer cucumber vine, they would go great with my tomatoes in a salad.
      My tomatoes are so pretty, I just can’t get over them growing and ripening in November. It’s a fun surprise. 🙂


    • Hi Foodypeoplehere
      Welcome to my blog.
      Unfortunately, sometimes no matter what we do, tomatoes may fail to thrive. At this time of year, in your region it could be too cold for tomatoes or it could be too dry if your region is in drought conditions.
      Thanks for visiting and leaving me a question. I’m sorry I can’t be of any help to save your tomatoes.
      I hope you’ll visit again sometime.
