Help! Tomatoes Aren't Ripening!

Hi there,

I planted six tomato plants of different varieties back at the beginning of May. They grew very fast and produced a lot of fruit. But for the past month or so, only a few of the tomatoes have actually turned red. I've done some google searching and most people recommend bringing the tomatoes in to ripen them. I don't want to bring in nearly a hundred tomatoes though, also the fruit flies will get them before they're red, I'm sure. A couple of articles also said to stop watering them, which in Vancouver will be quite difficult.

Has anyone been successful in covering your tomato plants to keep them dry and to help with the ripening process? What did you cover them with?

Thanks!
