So many people were nice enough to offer me advice on how best to ripen my tomatoes this late in the season--and I am happy to report that a few of them are now starting to turn red out on the vine!
The end of last week was downright cold, but the temps this week have rebounded and I'm glad that I left them in the ground for a while longer. Tonight, I decided to race outside before the sun set to take a few pictures...
... when all of a sudden, a flash of dark pink caught my eye. I went over to investigate, and discovered a cluster of ripening raspberries!
These are from a 'Canby Red' that I purchased on clearance in July and finally got in the ground in August. Needless to say, I didn't expect to see any fruit on it until next year. I don't know how many of these will actually ripen, but it looks like I am going to enjoy at least one homegrown raspberry yet this year. Yum.
