Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat

I guess its a good thing I didn't rip all those tomato plants out. For all my crying and whining, I am getting a good number of tomatoes right now. There are a lot out there that will be ready in the next few days as well. The plants look pretty funny. There are a whole lot of red tomatoes hanging from dead looking plants. Then on top, there are pretty tufts of new growth. I'll take some pictures later to give you a look. I'm just very grateful that it isn't late blight. People with that, have not had a choice. They have had to pull everything.
I got a whole canner load of 7 quarts of tomatoes. More than I could have hoped for! They look so pretty!

HURRAH! I am so glad you did not yank them out and miss this harvest as a result.
