After the last few weeks of occasional lite frost at night the tomatoes are looking quite dead.

I have been covering them with tarps on cold nights, but with heavy frost on it’s way and possibly snow, it’s time to pick all the remaining green tomatoes along with the peppers and eggplants.

These can ripen in a corner of the kitchen or in the cellar. They hold very well and ripen slowly. Some years we have had tasty tomatoes as late as a bit into december.
