ripening tomatoes

Posted: 08/10/2012 at 18:18

here is a tip for ripening the last green tomatoes as autumn starts to set in. Pull the whole plant out the ground leaving the green tomatoes on the vine and hang the plants upside down in a frost free place (shed). The goodness left in the plant will run backjup the plant and into the vines, ripening the tomatoes and giving them there natural sweetness
