N Texas Frost Last PM

Post  jrtexas on 11/13/2012, 5:50 pm

So we had our first frost last pm....I have 4 large plants with several green med sized tomatoes. What is the best thing to do now? Pick them tonight before possible second frost and store in bag? Leave them on vine and cover tonight?

Any advice based on your experience appreciated!

Pick them. The ones that have started getting a lighter green will ripen. The rest make good dill pickles.

I have tomatoes, that I picked green more than a month ago, slowly ripening in a basket in my dining room. We are still eating them fresh and also dehydrating them when ripe.

I had been wondering what to do about my multitude of green ones also. I covered them last night and tonight but I think I will pick all of the rest this weekend. Seems to be taking forever for them to turn red this time!

I picked green ones the day after the hurricane, put them in a bowl on my kitchen window, and this morning had to throw them in to the compost bin due to mold.

Hey, Cape, it was the sunshine. Store your green toms on a table or counter or a garage that doesn't feeze, but never in the sunshine.
