Late Bloomer

 This heirloom tomato plant has been growing outside our back door all summer long.

 It has been growing and growing but producing no fruit.

 Until last week. 

I had to take the calendar out and show this little tomato that it is almost Thanksgiving.  I reminded him that we do not live in Florida or California and that we have had frost and a hard freeze. 

Maybe I should put fresh homegrown sliced tomatoes on the Christmas dinner menu...
