    What is wrong with this sentence?

    During the summer when tomatoes are riotously in season I buy pounds and pounds of them to tide me the winter over.

    With the comma after 'season' there is nothing actually wrong with it. The structure '...to tide me the winter over' is not usual however, it would usually be: '...to tide me over the winter'.
