Ripening Green Tomatoes

I have a lot of green tomatoes. How do I get them ripen indoors? Some vines did not get enough sun and never ripened.

It is easy to ripen tomatoes indoors. Harvest tomatoes with the blossom end greenish white or starting to color up. Store the tomatoes in a cool (60 to 65 degrees) location to extend their storage life. Spread them out on heavy paper or wrap them in newspaper so they do not touch. The tomatoes will ripen over the next few weeks. Speed up the process by moving a few tomatoes to a bright warm location a few days before they are needed. Fry any green tomatoes or use them in relish or similar dishes.
