I wanted a tomato to slice into a sandwich, so naturally, went outside to see if there were any left to harvest, and came back with a complete punnet. Picked some fresh lettuce while I was at it.
It's November, isn't it? Frost, gales, ice, slush.... fresh lettuce? No, it isn't in a greenhouse, just a pot on the patio. There's a lovely blue sky out there, and when I go into town later, I doubt if I'll bother with a coat.
Incidentally, this year's tomato success story is "Minibel". Cherry, "dwarf", and while reports of it being so small it'll work on a windowsill aren't true, it works nicely in a pot, either trailing or with a bit of support. Supposedly an ealry cropper - well, this is November, and it's still going.

Our tomatoes are still putting out too; it's rather wild!

My tomatoes succumbed to blight at the end of September, as usual. Still got a few ripening indoors that were picked green then. Are yours sheltered from rain, which is how the blight arrives?

Not particularly sheltered, no. North-facing wall, some shelter from wind, but if it's rained, I don't need to water them.
