The nighttime temperatures finally dropped low enough that it toasted the squash vines, the pepper plants, and the tomato plants. I can’t believe it is October already and fall is here. It’s been so mild and dry that it seemed like summer was never going to end.
It was a warm summer for Oregon, but it still ended with an abundance of green tomatoes lost on the vine. The tomato below is a San Marzano. It is apparently the ideal Italian sauce tomato, but it seems to require an Italian-length summer to ripen.
