Fri 3 Oct 1941: 30lb tomato crop

Mild, some autumn sunshine in afternoon, chilly wind. Cold morning and night; thick white morning mist. Did all my shopping in morning including going to Wimbledon along rail path. Gathered the tomato crop that remained on the plants as there may be a night frost now. Seventeen pounds of fruit were weighed. We must have had about 30 lbs of four plants. One tomato weighed 9 ozs and many other almost as large.
