Patiently waiting for the tomatoes to turn red

The temperature's dropping and autumn's around the corner. I have plenty of green tomatoes on the vine, so it's a race against time to see if they turn red, otherwise they're destined to be turned into green tomato chutney like Monty Dons did this year. 

But some are turning red, and I'm enjoying every single one. Here's my biggest harvest so far:

moneymaker tomatoes 
gardeners delight tomatoes 
san marzano 
red cherry

To let the sun get to the tomatoes, I've cut back lots of the big leaves.

    I'm very fond of green tomato chutney, but I do think there'll be rather a lot this year. But if I leave it just a little bit longer.... and cut off a few more leaves... and if we get a bit more warmth...
