Not bad looking tomatoes for November, aren't they? Vine ripened and still flavorful in spite of some nighttime lows in the high 30ºF's. I also harvested but did not photograph more of nearly all the other varieties of tomatoes in the garden.
Vine ripened melons in November too! These are the last of them, I pulled the vines out on Saturday.
Ripe peppers keep coming in also, one of the Lady Bell's got a bit munched where it contacted the soil but was otherwise still good.

A few more figs have ripened but are looking a little battered after some rain and cold. They are sweet though. Do you think the tree took heed when I threatened to rip it out because none of the figs were ripening? They were just drying up and falling off so I had decided that I could make better use of the space. Every time I went out to check on the tree and found another leathery fig about ready to fall off the tree I told it You Are Toast, I'm ripping you out this winter. I may give it another year, maybe...
The heat loving amaranth is hanging in there just long enough to give me a couple of final harvests. I wrote a post about amaranth the other day if you are interested in learning a bit more about this leafy green.
