|Tomatoes harvested before the killing frost on Tuesday.|
The key to ripening green tomatoes is to not let them get too warm while they ripen. It is best to keep them at about 55F but under 75F is ok. It is also best to keep them out of direct sunlight as the sun will heat them too much and may cause them to rot before they ripen. Keep a close eye on your tomatoes as they ripen. Just like apples, one rotten tomato could spoil the whole bunch so don't forget to check on them frequently!

Do you ripen your green tomatoes or do you have a favorite preserve or dish you use them in? I'd love to here what you do with your green tomatoes.
Happy Harvesting! :)
