We decided to try to save as many tomatoes as we could before the first frost. So as I cut back the overgrown branches, Daughter helped pick off all the green tomatoes.
I washed them and laid them out on baking sheets and set them near a window where they would get some sun. Over the next several weeks they began to ripen enough to eat.
We felt better knowing we had saved them from the frost but Guv'nor says they don't have much taste.
I saw a recipe for grilled tomatoes that I may try with some of them.
