GREEN THUMB SUNDAY Last of the tomatoes

These are the last of our tomatoes. We had a cold snap last weekend, and again today. The weatherman says it will warm up, with highs in the 60's through next week, but I am glad to be done with them. In year's past, I've covered my tomatoes and kept them into October. I am glad we pulled the plants last weekend. I still have pumpkins, beets, parsnips, carrots and summer and winter squash to deal with. Not to mentions that I am really tired of figuring out things to do with tomatoes.
I blogged earlier about which tomatoes I liked and would try again, I have also heard about a yellow cherry tomato called Sun Sugar that is supposed to be wonderful. Has anyone tried this variety? I think I will put it on my list for next year to try out.

It looks like you have had a great crop of tomatoes. My plants didn't do verywell because of the flood in the UK in June, but there is always next year.

Looks like you had a wonderful crop. Will you make something with the green ones?

No luck this year with my tomatoes that where out doors. I will try a mobile green house for next year.

Cheers Mark

Well I know everything has its season but that doesn't stop me from getting sad when the tomatoes are through for the year ...

so which is the most flavorful cherry tomato?

Thanks for your comments-
Christa - I'll just let the green ones ripen, we had a lot more greener that I just composted.
Mark - let us know the details about the mobile green house, sounds intriguing.
Acey- it is a sad time for me, too. I do wish fall would last longer (and winter last less long!)
Anon- I dunno? I think that's personal taste

Your last crop looks like a good one.
