Eight pounds of the green tomatoes were picked for Green Tomato Mincemeat, another butternut squash was brought in and the closet ripened tomatoes were weighed and added to the harvest total. That was the last of the indoor ripening tomatoes. I always kept them clear through November in past years, but these ripened way too fast. I'm sure it was because I had them hidden in that closet, so they didn't get checked daily. Once a single tomato begins to ripen, it should be removed. I had several ripening in the box at once, which prompted the others to do the same.
I made another trip to the garden that same day and brought in the last butternut squash and a few strawberries. We'd been having some rain, and I lost a few berries due to the soggy condition of the bed.
