It happened today; frost appeared for the second night in a row so we harvested every last green tomato and pulled up the vines. Here’s the last of them.

Honestly I was this close *fingers a gnat’s eyelash length apart* from ripping them up out of the ground out of spite (one gets sick of tending tomatoes, trust me.) when the frost gave me the opportunity to seem a little more sane. People tend to stare when you rant about how your relationship with your produce plants has soured. Not normal. Not even a little.

Fare thee well, tomato plants. Rest in peace, or pieces at least, since we chopped you up with pruners so you’d decay nicely in the compost pile.
