I still have leftover green tomatoes too many of them the size of golf or tennis balls. Wonder if they will turn color. I noticed they are taking their time now and the peel is harder to chew. This summer was not good for them.

We had that one year.

You can wrap them in newspaper and put them in a carboard box while you wait for them to slowwllyyy ripen. Or you can make green tomato chutney.

Thank you for the suggestion definitely planning to do so For now I wait a few more weeks due to warmer September weather.

Not sure this belongs to All Vegetable Gardening thread (unless we can call fruits a "vegetable" )


I am harvesting my Asian pears now. Unlike the European pears, they can be eaten while hart, taste crunchy like an apple.




This particular one is called "Olympic" or commonly called "Korean Giant" for good reason.

I would like to try one of those Asian pears. And the giant Korean one too!

We are on well water. And our water (in Oklahoma) is so horrible due to fracking, I am wondering if that played a part in our tomato plants failure this year. It only stands to reason if the water is bad, the plant is going to suffer.

I would think they should ripen up in a few weeks. If not, pick them, wrap in newspaper and give them another few weeks. Our tomatoes, for the most part were not large at all this year, but we have had plenty. I dread thinking about going to the store and buying Hot house tomatoes or whatever we get in the winter. I am so spoiled.

Oh, I see, someone already gave you the info on wrapping them in newspaper. We have been doing this for years. I am sure we will have to do it this year as well.

One of the venders at our favorite small farmers markets had a load of them last Saturday.

Start plants in a semi shady area. Just enough sunlight to keep them from getting spindly. They normally transplant well. Just watch the weather. 8 weeks from seed to setting out plants is always just a guesstimate. I just bought Kohlrabi seed for a winter garden. Container.
