I wish I had a camera, or a neighbor like Jan who'd come and take a photo for me. I planted tomatoes back in May, I believe it was. Somebody forgot to fell them it's fall. They continue to produce red tomatoes. The weather has been so warm, the apple trees have come out of their dormancy and are sprouting green leaves. I'm actually hoping for a cold snap to put them back where they belong or they'll have no flowers for the bees in spring. Anyway, the weather is unseasonably warm and I'm loving it.
How is the weather out your way?
We've had several killing frosts so the tomatoes have all been added to the mulch pile. Sorry to see them go.
40's to low 50's during the day and 25-30 or so at night. I'm down I-5 from you almost 6 hrs, just inside CA. The coast is around 60 and nice. High pressure off the west coast has this pleasant system in place for awhile. I'm not complaining.
You're having an Indian summer. That happens occasionally. All we get is more intense cold and damp up here in the Pacific Northwest. The tomatoes aren't surprising. If you bought an indeterminate variety, they will keep on producing tomatoes so long as it's warm. Put them in a greenhouse and they'll go all winter. Determinate varieties grow and produce all they're going to produce in one shot! Then they're done and won't produce anymore no matter what you do.
I always plant indeterminates. That way I can pull the last of the crop off the vines before that first frost gets them and let them ripen on the kitchen window sill in the sun.

We had our first stretch of cold weather this last week. This is a little late in the season for this first cold days.
We had some hard frosts over night but it warmed up during the day. This last week it has not gotten over 32f during the day.
Temp right now 19f at 4 pm local.
Mild here on the east side of the northern Rockies : 10*C/50*F. Warmer for the next few days. The ice rink at the local park is melting.
We had record rains in Nov. Now it's been sunny in the 40s to 50s!
Our grass is greener in the wintertime here.
it was minus 10C in the bay..thats 14F in non canuck lingo..outside cutting wood for a pantry my cousin is making..damn near froze my arse off...was colder out at his place...closer to minus 15C the past few days..he said the wind was crazy..gusts up to 50 mph
I just checked out the weather in Portland & it's the same as here!
Heavy snow flurries on the drive home from work this evening. It was getting a bit scary trying to stay on the road. We aren't used to snow down here!
It's a nice cool 22 d c ( 72 f ) overcast day here today....we finely have got some respite from the blue cloudless sky's that we have been cursed with for the last few weeks, with temperatures in the mid 80s. It's been very dry, with no rain for a month, hopefully we will get some rainy days soon...as I am really over this relentless warm sunny weather we have been having.
Been crazy warm for lots of Alaska; highs in 30s to 40s, even got up around 50F last week; supposed go back up to 40's Monday. Lot of warm moist air from Pacific pushing up temperatures, and bringing rain or wet snow. Thompson Pass (Valdez) got huge snow dump, more coming.
This is a training day for drivers. It's around 0C with flurries. That means that lots of drivers are learning winter driving all over again for the first time since last year.
Hard freeze in Tucson, AZ last night.
There was frost on my grass this morning,.I still a have a few parsnips in the ground. They sweeten up in the cold.
Our first snow of the season begins in the morning. I look forward to a break from working outside.
I value our much-maligned British weather as the strong geographical and meteorological influence of nature.
Sunshine and clear blue sky is lovely but I'm not sure I would want to live under the medication-like monotony of perpetual brightness. Having one form of beauty interspersed with a different beauty and days where a pewter sky lays at hill-top level and the stinging rain off the ocean howls at us horizontally shapes who we are. Light and dark. Unpredictability and change.
