Here's a tip on ripening your own green tomatoes, if you are tired of fried green tomatoes, just put them in a paper bag and allow to ripen. I will tell you that ripened green tomatoes in a bag are not quite as good as freshly picked vine-ripened tomatoes, but they are still better than conventional tomatoes. You can make a tomato soup with your leftover crop, check out what I did last year HERE.
Unfortunately I do not have a greenhouse of my own to grow some vegetables year round, so I have to pay attention to weather patterns. My herbs, for the most part will continue to grow through the winter, except my basil, which I will harvest before the first frost. I replanted my Swiss chard so that it can grow during the winter and I also added some blueberry plants to my garden.
