I brought in my tomato plants in last night and it was a good thing I did because last night was our first heavy frost !

So within 4 wks we are proably going to end up with snow .

Our Winters usually last til March/April . Then we have a pretty cool rainy season until the end of June.

Then we get really hot temps that are in July/August sometimes we may even have hot temps in Sept & October it just depends.

So I am hoping that I can keep the plants suriving thru the whole winter with flowers coming on and producing more tomatoes !

That's what I'm hoping as I'm going to try to see if I can have these two tomato plants survive all year long !

How big do they get when you bring them in? Have pics?

Also where do you live? The weather sounds a lot like the Midwest.

Well we live in Montana ! So far the ones I planted by seed is growing taller and the one that is store bought still have tomatoes on it but that one will more likely not be able to be winterized after the tomatoes get ripe .
