October Tomatoes

By Published On: October 20th, 20200.5 min readCategories: Photos

The summer veggie garden is now down to the hot peppers, a few bell peppers, and a bunch of raggedy, but hanging in there, tomato plants.

Chief among them is the Costolutos, which took a hard hit about a month ago but rebounded to flower and fruit for a third round in this growing year.

A great tomato by any measure, it’s interesting that the first bunch back in June were really deeply lobed, but they’ve gotten progressively smoother since. It’s now mid-October and the ones currently ripening only hint at lobes with some coloring. Otherwise, they’re nearly as smooth as a standard big slicer.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
