Every year around this time we get the first frost.
This year is no different.
With temperatures around and below the dreaded 32° F freezing point,
there is no way our tomato plants would survive.
(unless we had a hoop house...maybe).
So the night before the freezing temperatures I went outside to collect all the green tomatoes.
I keep them in a cluster, tie them to a
string and hang them up.
These green tomatoes will slowly turn red in the next couple of months...that means we'll eat homegrown garden tomatoes in December.
My grandfather did this every year.
If you have a basement or cellar, keep the tomatoes there, as it would be cooler. But really any place would work.
Mine usually hang from the pot rack.
