Not exactly farmers

My tomato plants are starting to look rather autumnal.

The good news is that two more of the fruits are starting to turn orange (bringing our edible count up to 3!!). The bummer is that it’s rainy, cold, and we’re losing our light. Here are the dripping cherry tomatoes.

It sounds, from reading the gardening sites, like I’m not the only Pacific Northwest tomato grower who’s been thwarted this year. Plenty of people are recommending bringing green fruit indoors so that it can ripen on the counter. I’m trying to give it a few more days, but the nights are starting to get into the 40s, so we’ll see how long I can hold out.
