Count your losses

This beauty comes from Sarah Hodges:  “My husband and I were discussing the coming frost and my still-green
tomatoes
. He told me to “count my losses” and just pick them green.”    This is a mash up of “cut your losses” (do something to stop further losses) and I believe “count your blessings” (grateful for any small benefit, particularly in a difficult situation).  Hey, a green tomato is better than no tomato, right?
