Last years tomatoes

With the weird weather this year, my garden tomatoes were not producing very much over the summer. But now - in the middle of January! - there are suddenly lots of cherry tomatoes on the last years plants.

They don't ripen completely, I guess the days are too short. So I pick them orange, and let them ripen in the kitchen for a day or two. They are not as super-sweet as summer tomatoes, but they taste great! Even in their orange state the taste is complex and sweet.

The rains and cold weather are coming, and they will kill my plants for sure, but for now we are enjoying tomatoes fresh off the vine in the middle of the winter.
