The back yard tomatoes are nearly done. There are several plants with one or two tomatoes on them. Once those mature, they'll be pulled.
Today is my birthday -- 48 years old.

All but the Old Ivory Egg were given away at a post wedding reception we went to in the afternoon.
We've now harvested over 500 front yard tomatoes for the month of October! That's a remarkable amount – usually the plants are much too burned out by this point in the year.
Today's tomatoes were given away to my mother, whom we met in the afternoon for lunch, along with my wife and her parents.
