If you’re ready to pull up your tomato plants, but you don’t want to lose the tomatoes already on there, you have a few options:
(1) Pick off the green tomatoes, wrap them individually in newspaper, and line them up on the bottom of a wooden crate or basket;
(2) If you’re looking for something less labor-intensive, depending on the type of tomato, you could try just putting them on a window sill to ripen; be aware, though, that some may rot instead of ripening so watch them carefully.
If you have too many tomatoes that get ripe at once, remember that you can always freeze them for later use!
(3) Eat them green! We’ve already told you how to make delicious fried green tomatoes and tasty green tomato chutney, but why not take this opportunity to come up with a great recipe of your own–and then come back here and share it with us!
