I planted my first New Jersey garden this year.

Having experienced Philadelphia’s growing climate for tomatoes for many years, AKA yield of three half rotten toamtoes, I was somewhat unprepared for the insane bounty of fruit.
Here’s a few great ideas and recipes for what to do with garden tomatoes:
