Season's End

You might remember that a couple of months ago, I posted this photo.

That was my baby tomato plant, lovingly carried home from work and replanted in my garden. Well, this is what it turned into.

Yes, I know I should have trimmed the leaves and branches back. At least I know that for next year! We had some ripe tomatoes.

And now we have a whole bunch of green tomatoes to make chutney with!

I'm sad to see the tomato plant come to an end. It's been a lot of fun and I'm extremely proud that I managed to get it to go that far. It's the first time I've ever grown anything and I can't believe how large it grew! Now the plant will return to the earth, becoming compost for next year's harvest.
