The tomato I put on my windowsill a couple of weeks ago is actually turning red--guess I picked it a little early, eh?
But the ones out on the vines: Still green!
And little sun for the past few days. Sheesh. Of course, I'm assuming sun ripens them, as if they were getting a suntan, or burn, and not some internal vegetative process.
