Fall is coming fast and if you’re still seeing lots of green tomatoes hanging on the vine, today’s podcast will give you tips for ripening those green tomatoes both on and off the vine. I’ll also share tips for what to grow in your fall garden. It’s not too late plant!
As I look around my garden, I’m still seeing a lot of tomato plants with green fruit and the days of summer are waning… With my region’s average first frost date coming in mid-September, I don’t think Mother Nature is going to get these all ripened!
If you’re seeing the same, don’t despair — we have options for ripening those green tomatoes into something that will still taste far better than anything you buy in the grocery store!
Top Photo: This large yellow heirloom is just starting to show a little color. If frost was pending, I’d definitely pick this one and probably leave the smaller on the left. It’s too immature to fully ripen off the vine — but it can still be used in green tomato salsa or green tomato cake!
