Your tomatoes will continue to grow in girth and will turn red when they are ripe. Probably another 4-5 weeks, depending upon weather. Feed with a half strength dilution of water soluable fertilizer (such as Miracle Gro) every 2-3 weeks for the remainder of the growing season. Feeding half strength will ensure your plants receive the nutrients they need without the risk of burning the roots. Good luck with your tomatoes!
