October tomatoes: Am I missing something?


I go much of the summer without a decent tomato crop. By September, most of my plants have shut down production, leaving a few for me to think wishfully about. Now that it's almost November, they're coming in? What am I missing here? This is a 'Mortgage Lifter' and I'm glad to have it. Not as sweet as the tomatoes of summer but then, I didn't have much luck this summer. Good thing I'm not a farmer. My family would starve.
