The Frost is Coming...

I didn't even know they could ripen off the vine. I learned something today!

Do you have a trick to ripening the green tomatoes? If mine aren't starting to turn red when I pick them they don't seem to want to ripen.

I just froze 3 batches of tomatoes today. I can't wait to make some yummy tomato soup from them when the weather turns warm. I may get a few more weeks out of my plants but next week is supposed to be cold so I guess we'll just have to see.

Will you be planting any winter crops?

I am not planting any winter crops because I have all of my rose bushes in there right now. I had to do that because of the remodel.

If your tomatoes are ripening fast enough, trying putting them in a brown paper bag. They should be good to go in a couple days:-)
