This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

lots of green tomatoes

green tomatoes
Yesterday I picked all of my tomatoes, since I thought it might frost. It got down to about 38F - no frost yet. I'll put this box in the basement and try to remember to check it regularly. Last year pretty nearly all of my green tomatoes ripened within a month of picking.

Solanum lycopersicum

Hi,
You could add a couple of bananas to your green tomato box to aid the ripening process.
