End of tomato planting

The weather has been getting cooler and it’s the end of tomato season in Melbourne. Yesterday, I removed the sad-looking plant…

TootsieTimeSorry for my sad photos.

I look forward to seeing your lovely garden photos, especially those in the northern hemisphere. I love fresh spring colours.

Have a nice weekend.

So, are you getting ready for fall where you live?

The death of a tomato plant is always sad, after all the giving it gave! Right???

Mmm, can't wait to pick my own tomato. Since you don't have Christmas to brighten winter, is there any holiday you celebrate to make it more pleasant?

Your gardens are ending and ours are just beginning. I know how you feel though. Although fall is a pretty season here with the trees I always get a little sad that all the flowers will soon be gone.That is what I love about this blogging around the world, when I can see your blooms in the winter when I have nothing.
Happy FF.
