Tomato woes

Well here it is in the middle of November and I'm still waiting on my tomatoes to ripen. I have them out in the back garage. It's likely too cool out there, however, as soon as I bring them in they go to bleep. The start to turn orange and then before they get nice and red they get spots and then turn moldy

I was able to save a few from another box and made a bit of salsa. I followed a new recipe and it's too sweet and the apple cider vinegar made it pretty tangy. However at least I was able to make something.

I have 4 more boxes out back that are just starting to turn. I'm not sure what will happen with them. I would like to make a few jars of whole tomatoes, but I don't see that happening. It's rather depressing to grow them from seed and then wait this long for them to turn to

Have a great day
