My tomato plants are loaded with tomatoes but I fear all of the good warm days are gone. Can I pick them and let them ripen on the counter? Do I keep them on the vines a bit longer? Is it time to say adios to this garden experiment? Because ultimately, with the weird weather we had this summer, it would have been a LOT cheaper to just buy a few tomatoes every time I went to the store instead of planting 'em myself. I'm on the fence as to whether or not I'll try again next year.
