End of the Season

Tomato season is officially over in my garden. The plants have been removed and the garden tilled. Those Sweet 100 cherries and the Early Girl delights have been banished and the last of the produce is now sitting in my kitchen. Until next summer I will have to be content with tomatoes imported from elsewhere in the world. It was with sadness that I painted this last tribute to the bounty of my garden. The painting is 5x7 inches.

I agree--end of the tomato season brings on a sadness. But the first tomatoes of spring have just the opposite effect--excited for the coming goodness!
