From our single cherry tomato plant:

It got to 20 the night before I brought them in. I covered the plant with blankets and plastic; but, it’s a fool’s errand to try to keep tomatoes alive in October in Colorado. I separated the tomatoes into two boxes: ones to ripen, and ones to can. Altogether, just under 25 pounds.

I ended up with 2 1/2 quarts of dried tomatoes and 23 pints of various green tomato things like salsa and relish and piccolilli.

The scarf I knitted for the RNK and I with various animals. The scarf and Ida Rose Parker:
