I think the unexpected frost the other day is speeding up the ripening of at least my tomatoes, they,,,at least the cherry tomatoes, have started cranking out ripe tomatoes!:) Nine today, the first ripe ones this year!:)

It should,

Last year my squash ripened just fine by leaving them on the vines till they eventually withered after a while after the frosts got bad enough to kill all of the leaves on them. And this year I am trying thinning out the tomatoes to let the others mature and ripen, I made a batch of Fried Green tomatoes for supper the other day, I was the only one in the house that would eat them, so I am going to make Pickled Green Tomatoes out of the rest.
