Not far from true, Suzie! Here in Jersey we grow the best tomatoes in the USA, and we're pretty lucky most years to have good local ones from August into October. Then it's back to roasting the pink hockey pucks before trying to use them, and/or, as redmike discovered, adding carrots to enhance their sweetness.
I don't usually make Tomato Soup after October... did it once and was very disappointed. but I sure do love it!
