Last of the November Tomatoes

I have been such a wimp recently, I have not ventured much into the allotment garden plot of late.  The constant drizzle is bringing me down.  I leave home to go into work in the morning and get drenched; and I get home home and I am soaking.  The joys of waiting for public transport when there is no shelter.  So come the weekend and its raining, the last thing I want to do is go out - even if it is my back garden.  Fortunately for me, my husband picked the last tomatoes in the greenhouse in November.
These were all used for a pasta sauce and a cold pasta salad for work..
Some of you may remember that from my last Harvest Monday blog post that I do still have some curly kale and black Tuscan aka dinosaur kale, and purple Brussels sprouts to harvest, but after that there will not be much else to share on Harvest Monday until Spring next year.   For now, please enjoy the last of my homegrown tomatoes that were harvested in the last week of November. I am sharing this blog post with Dave who hosts Harvest Monday at his blog Our Happy Acres.

  1. Purple Brussels sprouts are enviable. I should try them.

  2. Sorry to hear you have to wait in the rain for public transport - hope you don't arrive at work wet too - that is the worst. You must be sorry to see the last of the tomatoes - sounds like time to hibernate!!!!

    1. Thanks Johanna. The additional price of using public transport. Not too bad when I get into work, more when I get home.

  3. I'm so pleased you're still getting anything out of the garden, even if it's a handful of tomatoes! Do the purple sprouts stay purple when you cook them? I'm intrigued!

    1. Thanks Joey. I hope to share harvested sprouts in the next couple of weeks for Christmas dinner hopefully. I have had them before, but cannot remember - I have feeling the colour goes on cooking.

    1. My mother freezes tomatoes, not something I do as we have a small freezer, I could have made some jams and chutneys but have been a bit lazy this year - good to know you have some still to enjoy

  7. Tomatoes in November - what an amazing year! But, I agree, it's far too soggy at the moment, I want a few sunny, frosty days now!

    1. Yes, it has been a good year with veg, esp. tomatoes - though my husband has not been keen on some of the varieties grown this year. And yes hopefully a change in the weather too
