They’ve wilted & been watered in this heat all summer but the tomato plants are the gift that keep on giving!! And who knew that I’d get red & green chillis?! Load of green ones came first & now red!! #veggies #homegrown #houseonthehill

What should I do with these beauty's?! I'm not convinced they're going to ripen!

I had the same situation. I took them off the vine and put them on my sunny kitchen windowsill. They have all ripened now @w4key7 . 😊

Thanks @pelly Did you put them in anything? Cardboard box or container?!

Should have said, if you want to keep them on the vine then take all the leaves off that are blocking the sun. 😊

Put a ripe banana next to them that always helps them ripen 😀
