All of my fall tomatoes froze about a week and a half ago. I thought I would finally get a crop as they were all just about as big as they would get. Maybe next year.

He were using the fleece on the Armadillos.
We harvest dillos in late summer. Coons and possums in late winter. If the weather cooperates and doesn't freeze the tomatoes make a good side dish.

Yep, it frosts here. In fact next Tuesday it will get down to the mid 20'sF here. It will last a couple of days and be back into the high 70'sF. We fatten up the dillos until Easter. We call them Texas oysters on the half shell.

You treat them as crops? Are you pulling my leg? What do dillos taste like? Corr! You'll never be hungry? Nice ones - save a lot of money and I bet they are not injected with growth hormones!

No matter where you live there is free food available. Just cruise up and down the highways and back roads. A person with a sharp eye can spot it laying in the roadside ditches. The only thing is that you don't want it too aged so your nose has to work extra good too.

I did that once and spotted a pheasant. Sadly the taste was a bit of a let down.
