A Little More Sunshine Please

Two Out Of Three
Tomatoes Need More Sun

This has been a great year for gardening with stellar flower and vegetable gardens all over Nanaimo.

If you are like me however, you still have an abundance of green tomatoes that would really benefit from just a few more days of dry heat and sunshine.

If the weatherman doesn't co-operate an old trick I learned from a gardener long ago to ripen green tomatoes: don't put them in the window sill, instead put them in a brown paper bag to ripen. They will be just about as good as vine ripened, but not quite.
