It's Over For 2008

It's over. All the spring tomatoes are pulled.

The gardener pulled all of the tomatoes except one, a winter tomato. It should have been pulled as well but the gardeners overlooked it.

We've had three nights where it has gotten below freezing. It may happen tonight as well. This morning, it got down to 28.1 degrees at Pierce College.

Even if the tomatoes somehow mature, I don't think we'd enjoy them. So I had them all pulled.

Our 2008 spring tomato total came to 4503 tomatoes.

As I prepare for the 2009 plantings, I'll be posting again. Until then, I'll be quiet until then.
