Hello, my name is Jessica Craven. I'm a master gardener, and I have my certification in permaculture design. Today, we're going to talk a little bit about how we can pick our ripe tomatoes, and how we can care for them. So, here we have some really gorgeous tomatoes that we've just picked. Several of these are ripe, several need a little tiny bit more ripening. There's a couple ways you can encourage these tomatoes to continue ripening, and be more flavorful. A lot of folks like to stick them on their kitchen counter and allow them to continue ripening, but that really just does the outside.

So, here's a couple ways for you to continue to care for your very ripe tomatoes.
