My tomatoes performed well this year, producing fruit through October. Other growers had problems with some kind of late-season blight, which I think I avoided because I am so isolated from other growers. But diseases of this sort get harder to avoid the longer you grow things. I move my plants to new soil every year, but I’m not sure I can keep them disease-free forever. The plants died with the first frost and snowfall, which was October 28th this year. On the 25th I picked a gallon of ripe tomatoes, and on the 27th another gallon of ripening tomatoes, though I’m not entirely certain they will all sweeten properly. Now I’m working on eating them. Far and away my best performer this year was “Ping Pong,” which produced good-tasting (slightly mild), disease-free firm fruits in superior abundance.
