Goodbye Summer

We are having our first nighttime
freezes of the autumn here in Colorado.
This summer was the first
real summer that I enjoyed gardening.
My roses are still blooming
and the grandsons' garden is
still producing tomatoes.
I thought I had better bring
the green tomatoes in so that
they wouldn't freeze and be ruined.

Does anyone know if they will turn
red off the vine?  

I'm really going to miss
my garden this winter,
but I guess that is what makes
springtime oh, so sweet.

Sounds like it's time for some friend green tomatoes!
