The Q&A Archives: tomatoes

Question: I live just north of KlamathFalls ,Or. My tomatoe plants are almost five feet high, tons of green tomatoes on the plants, but dont seem to want to ripen. What am I to do ? thank you john

Answer: Not much you can do to encourage ripening. Tomatoes need warm weather in order to ripen. You still have the month of August so with any luck at all, the weather will warm enough for the fruits to grow and mature. I sure hope so!
