My grape tomato plant produced the last tomatoes today. It had been a huge bush with several long vines. Today, I picked the last of the fruit and cut it down for the season. I hear that it may freeze overnight on Monday so I will cut down the rest of the plants (ten or eleven) tomorrow. Here is a salad that I had for lunch to enjoy the end of the tomato season. You could use the lovely tomato from the CSA share this week.

2 cups of Mesa Top Salad mix
2 Chicory leaves, sliced very thin
2 cups of grape tomatoes
Goat cheese, in small peices

Creamy dressing to cut the bitter greens. I used an asiago cheese dressing that had a vinegar bite in it as well.
Toss the salad ingredients together and enjoy
