tomato harvest

Winter is coming to Texas. Yes, it was 70 degrees when I got up this morning but the cold is on its way. It is suppose to freeze tomorrow night. DH & I took advantage of the good weather. He hung Christmas lights on the house (but not they are not lit because that can't happen before Thanksgiving) and I started clearing the beds for winter. I pulled up my tomato plants and found these:


The sum total of my tomatoes this year. How disappointing again!

I had lots of flowers but they would drop off before the fruit formed. I googled to figure out my problem. It wasn't blossom end rot. I had enough pollinators around, bees & butterflies were plenty. I think it was just too hot. Darn living in Texas. I think my watering method might have something to do with it. I'm going to have to try something new next year.

70 sounds heavenly! It was 18 here this morning and school was cancelled b/c of icy roads.
