Gooode morning all! More rain starting at 40F and 89% RH, with 4 mph breeze and predicted to reach 43F.

Alas, my 9 1/2 foot tomato plant has started to wilt, so will be taking her out, along with my last Jalapeno. Interesting to watch the Jalapeno chemically battle with the adjacent Quince plant. Every place they touch, the leaves die and shrivel on both plants.

We have snow in the mountains, but just recently had our first freeze here in the valley. I let the tomato plant go after stripping all the tomatoes, just to see where it would end up. It continued to blossom and produce tomatoes. It has about half a dozen small green ones as we speak.

It was a Morton's Hybrid and I've never seen anything like it. It took over my garden sideways as well and I named her Audrey, from the Little Shop of Horrors. She engulfed the beefsteak tomato plants next to her and I removed them before they died from lack of sunlight

It was prolific and produced regular size tomatoes that were delicious.

I fed it Alaska fish fertilizer and grew it in composted topsoil.

Watching the news, I see we are predicted to have a scattering of snow here, later this week.
