January tomatoes

I posted about my tomato plants in November and again in December, surprised about them hanging on so long. The volunteer plant on the patio finally died, but the cherry tomatoes on the driveway are still (barely) alive:

I don’t know whether the small amount of fruit on the plants will ripen before the plant dies.

There are still flowers, so we might get more fruit.

Our “winter” has been very mild so far, with only a few light frosts. If that continues, the plants may survive into the spring. The warm weather also has meant that the lawn has gotten quite long—I had to mow the lawn yesterday. At this time of year the “lawn” is almost all oxalis, which is very wet and clumps up in the mower—I had to keep bumping the mower on the sidewalk to dislodge the buildup.
