Tomato Ripens In January

The tomato has one spot of green to ripen and then it's mine, all mine. I am hungering for a summer style BLT. I can use the romaine lettuce in the garden which makes the sandwich all the tastier. The vine is looking a little weather worn but as I was taking this photo, I saw three small green tomatoes hidden in the foliage so I won't be removing this plant...yet.

Wow?! HOw unseasonal is this for your garden? I've noticed a couple posts like this on the web, Like on woman in ontario who's flower garden was blooming last month. I work at park seed and wayside gardens, and there has been some talk lately about a shift in the hardiness zones, not just within the company, but from the USDA because of warming. Its all a little scary.

I think the fact that the trees have been removed from the south side of the garden has a lot to do with this situation. On sunny days, the garden is drenched in sun now.
