Good Morning! I understand the first frost date for Meigs County area, precisely Middleport,is projected for October 5, 2020, according the the Farmers Almanac forecast. I have 60 tomato plants...not a commercial grower, but just wondering since I have tons of large green tomatoes still on the vine, if I could pull these off the vine green the day before to either ripen in an Ares in my home or enclosed nearby building or until I could lay them outside in the sun to ripen after the frost...would that work/possibly to ripen them safely?
