Please advise me if you think I’m wrong, but I don’t think these tomatoes are going to ripen before frost:
I planted this heirloom tomato plant kind of late in the season after most of my other tomatoes failed. But it took too long to grow big, and now these green tomatoes are just hanging around. And even though I think of fried green tomatoes as a summertime food, there’s not a lot of other ways to make use of the inevitable green tomatoes left over at the end of the season. I like recipes, like Gourmet’s, that use cornflakes for added crunch. So unless I see a little color improvement on these tomatoes when I’m out in the garden again this weekend, I’m just going to pick the green fruits and have a nice little fry.
