I'm getting some tomatoes coming from the vine where one half is very red
and the other half is very green. I picked those and put them in a paper
bag but was wondering how to eat those. Should I cut it in half, eat the
red part, and then wait for the green part to turn red?
BTW: Most of the tomatoes ripen evenly.
I've wondered about the Adirondacks and gardening: we're in
the Appalachians in north central Pennsylvania and our last
expected frost is around May 31 (hahahahaha - two of the
three years we've lived here, we've had killing frosts in
mid-June) and our first expected frost is around October 1.
Is your season similar to that, or even shorter?

Old-timers here tell me that there has been frost every
single month of the year. I believe it, but haven't lived
here that long. It often goes into the low 40s at night in
summer, and occasionally high 30s, that's for sure. Not
good for heat-loving plants.
Do you have a hoophouse?
We're planning on building one this fall (although we may be
moving, which will set the hoophouse plans back, probably
until next spring.)

Not good for heat-loving folks either! I've been up that way
on vacation for the past two summers, and if it's that cold
in the summer, I don't even wanna think about winter! I was
in Upstate New York in April, and it *snowed*!
Do you know how dangerous it is for a Southerner to be out
in a heavy snow storm? We're like that old urban legend (Hi Pan)
about turkeys in a rainstorm. We stand in the falling snow, arms
stretched out to catch the snow flakes, head back and mouth
agape. And we'll stand there until they start to announce school
closings or someone drags us back inside.
I don't know how people survive where it's that cold that long!

If you place them in a bowl with some apples they'll ripen
quickly. Apples give off a gas that causes other fruits and veggies to
ripen, or if your no a little careful, to rot.
