Vegetable Plants as Winter Approaches – It is neither feng shui nor good practice to allow vegetables to fall from the vine and to be left to decay on the ground. It is important that you pay attention as the weather gets colder to what is occurring in your vegetable patch. Specifically, grown tomatoes will cease to ripen at some point, and need to be tended to at this time.
You should pull the entire vine of the tomato up and move them to a greenhouse. Inside the greenhouse, hang the plants upside down where they will be able to complete the ripening process. Not only will this provide you with many more tomatoes for consumption, but also you will not have rotten tomatoes lying on the earth, potentially attracting disease.
