Ripening Green Tomatoes

End of the season and you're still left with a crop of green tomatoes? Me too.  Phil's mom mentioned to me today that I can ripen all my green tomatoes by placing them on newspaper in the basement and they'll eventually turn red.  There's so much to learn about gardening!  I always thought you needed the sun for that and imagined all my windowsills lined with tomatoes.

After doing a quick search on the web there are all sorts of ways to doing it - like placing them in plastic bags with ripe bananas - but I think I'll stick to the way she told me because it seems the easiest. 

I've started off with removing the stems, gently cleaning them, followed by air drying.  I'll check in with you and let you know if it turned out.
