Here in Minnesota we are getting cool temperatures at night now. Soon we will get frost overnight as well whicj kiils off tomatoes quickly. This is a shot of my grape tomatoe plant. The leaves are all gone from the chilly nights already. These will need to picked very soon or lose them. Are your tomatoes done for the year as well? Do you get fropst? In the other areas of the world can you grow tomatoes all year long I wonder? What do you do with your tomatoes at seasons end? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hmm... Yummmy... They look very delicious! I can tell that you have put your most effort into taking care of them.. We get frost in the winter time when it gets very cold. Well, with any tomatoes, I usually will buy them from the store.. I don't grow any in our back yard.. We are renting, so I am not sure if we are able to plant anything..

I love gardening etc. It is my form of stress relief from March till October or so. Try patio plants for indoor gardening. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I don't know about other parts of the world but here in FL I have two tomato plants that are still small cause I just got them a couple of weeks ago. I need to feed them again. They were pretty sickly looking when I got them but they are starting to come out of it.

So do they grow all year long? Or do they lose the fruits after so many months and you buy a new one? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi GRANDPA BOB, Those grape tomatoes look so delicious and very beautiful and I bet it smell s lovely, I wish I can grow tomatoes like that but the U.K is not very good for the sunshine, maybe two to three weeks in the summer and that is not long enough. Tamara

I never paid attention to the smell of tomato plants actually. These are all wortless to eat though. Almost everyone is split from being overripe. Been too busy with dad etc and forgot about the gardening chores. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I've already noticed the price for tomatoes, including the wonderful grape tomatoes are going up. Of course there was the tomato scare, but since the season for them is coming to an end, here come the higher prices! And in winter the quality is not as good. Perhaps because the shipping takes longer in the winter because of where they are grown?

Yeah the price of everything has skyrocketed as of late. I recall just a couple years ago milk was just over $2 a gallon. Bread I could get for $1. It all reflects on the cost of shipping things. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hello Grandpa Bob. Here in Zhejiang China, it is also getting cooler, but just ten days ago, it was so humid and hot. It seems that it is all of a sudden that the weather gets cool. I had a bike-ride the day before and saw yellows of fall in the fields though there are still some greens. I happened to see some tomatoes hanging around the put-up shelf for the growing of tomatoes on the way while riding in the country. It is in fact the first time that I have ever seen tomatoes hanging on the shelf. It is good that I have got to know more of farming knowledge. I love to eat tomatoes, either big ones or tiny ones. Happy posting, Bob.

We haven't had frost yet and I'm hoping it hold off for a few weeks because my one tomato plant is still sprouting tomatoes! My mom says they're very good, it's called an Early Girl plant and there aren't that many seeds in it, they are very solid. I plan to follow your advice before the frost and and wrap the tomatoes in newspaper, etc. I will freeze the ripe ones if my mom hasn't eaten them (she goes home on Oct. 25) for tomato sauce this winter.
