That's the question. Is there an overnight temp to watch for. this is in Denver.

As temperatures start to go below 55 degrees, start planning to bring in your tomatoes because at temperatures below 50 degrees, the enzymes involved in ripening are destroyed.

It has stayed warm in Denver so far but the weather is about to change. There are predictions of nighttime temperatures dipping into the 40's at the end of this week.
