As boardmeister of this august site I am provided with occasional opportunities. Here's an example I got from New Zealand:

Dear Editor,

My name is Joey and Im an Editor at Happy DIY Home. I was doing research on how to ripen green tomatoes and just finished reading your wonderful piece: http://vo-bb.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=9444&start=30&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

In that article, I noticed that you cited a solid resource that Ive come across in the past: http://tipnut.com/ripen-tomatoes/

We just published an updated, comprehensive guide on how to ripen green tomatoes. It is completely free and you can find it here: https://happydiyhome.com/how-to-ripen-green-tomatoes/

If you like the piece wed be humbled if you cite us in your article. Of course, we will also share your article with our 100k newsletter subscribers and followers across our social platforms.

Either way, keep up the great work!

Warmly,
Joey


To save you a bit of research here's what caught their Internet scan's eye... basically my response to someone who wanted to know what to do with green tomatoes:

Quote:
Try putting the green tomatoes in a paper bag with an apple or two. The ethylene gas put off by ripening apples will speed up the ripening of the tomatoes. Check them once a day so you can pull out tomatoes that are ready or replace apples that are about to rot.

Here's a website with further ideas: http://tipnut.com/ripen-tomatoes/

Enjoy!


An opportunity I think I'll pass on.

I bow to the wisdom of our AI overlords and their scanbot savvy!🙃

I'm on hour 18 of air drying green toms. I've also roasted a lot. Quebec ketchup is about 24 hours away!!

You learn something new every day. Quebec ketchup, also known as chow chow? Sounds delish.
