Pie it forward: Grandson keeps Green Tomato Pie tradition alive
Just as the green tomatoes on the plant I'd been pampering all summer began to show a slight tinge of orange, the air turned nippy. An overnight frost was predicted. Two nights in a row, I wrapped the plant in old beach towels, hoping the ripening fruit would survive the quick blast of freezing temperatures. The leaves look a little droopy, but the plant survived.
