Well, yesterday we had to make a tough decision about the tomatoes. It wasn't regarding frost, but the west coast rain that plays just as much havoc on the plants (I have been reading up on tomatoes on the west coast). The leaves were turning black and several of the tomatoes were already rotting.
So we picked them. My four scrawny little plants produced around 75 tomatoes that we picked (though weeded out some little and/or rotten ones from that) and left at least 30 more with the vines as being small or rotten.
I have pictures and as soon as I get them developed, I will post them.
Thanks everyone for your help. I will know better next year!
