We are always up for ways to extend the Season of our Fresh Produce. Mother and Dad wrapped Green Tomatoes in Newspapers at the end of the Season. Then they placed them in a box and put them in a cool (not cold) place. By some magic that I do not understand, the Green Tomatoes slowly ripen. We have been doing this too. We keep checking to cull out those that are not doing so well and to eat those that are ripe.
We extended our harvest of Tomatoes until Christmas Eve last year. Our Family Tradition for this Meal on this Night is Homemade Ravioli. Richard's is the best. A Salad with Fresh Tomato from our Garden was a perfect side.
