But what should I do? There are quite a few young green tomatoes on the plant. It's still sprouting new growth as though it thinks there is a whole new growing season ahead. It even has new growth and blossoms. Should I bring it inside for the winter? If so, where should it go? We really don't have any free sunny spots for a plant like this.
But it's nearing late October! What's going on? Even the fall foliage is hanging on this year way past its peak.
I shouldn't complain. Summer was late this year. We kept having one cold wave after another. It took forever for the lakes to warm up enough for comfortable swimming. So the garden was late coming in. Is this the new trend in Maine weather, prolonged autumn followed by late arrival of snow, but then late spring and summer? Is it global warming? Is this why the housing slump hasn't hit New England yet?
