We have 3 weeks left of our Farmers Market season. We had a killing freeze last weekend, everything in my high tunnel came through the cold just fine. I am picking a good quantity of cherry tomatoes. The problem is my big tomatoes aren't turning. I have tons of tomatoes that are full sized. I am afraid that we aren't going to have enough sun to get the needed heat to make them ripen to red. I have been picking anything that is starting to blush and bring them inside to finish ripening.
Is there anything I can do to hasten the ripening. I really don't want to pick them when they are green and see if the will turn. I think I am just out of luck and I will get what I get.
