The first frost in Indiana usually doesn't arrive until mid or late October. Before that, I snip my herbs, mince them, and put them in plastic containers in the freezer. They make wonderful fresh herb additions to soups and stews! Or you can simply cut down the entire herb plant, hang it upside down in a cool place, and use the herbs dried. I harvest my green tomatoes before the frost and put them in a brown bag on the kitchen counter. They will eventually ripen. However, check them frequently as sometimes they are too green and will never ripen. Then you can use them for fried green tomatoes!
