Breaking up

The clouds and rain; chilly mornings, but we get some little bits of warmth as we head out for exercise in the afternoon. Squoze in a climbing session, such as it was, but any little bit of it is a good thing. My main climbing pal will be absent some in the near future, so I hope to draft some others in the ongoing attempt to maintain fitness on all fronts.
We are about done with the amazing beefsteak tomatoes from our own backyard; I heard a local gardening guru claim you could uproot the remaining plants, hang them upsidedown in a cool place, and the remaining fruit will ripen. This is too curious a process to avoid.

We've picked all of our green tomatoes at the end of a growing season and put them on shelves in the garage, where they ripened. Roger has hung them upside down as well. It works. You can get homegrown tomatoes well into November!
