What do you do?

When its October and the rains have set in, and you get this many green tomatoes off of 4 bushes, knowing that you easily have 40 more bushes to harvest?
Well, you roll up your sleeves and start chopping.
Throw a huge pile into your stockpot with onions, minced peppers (which fared far better because they lived out their lives in the greenhouse), and spices.
Simmer for a few hours until you have a canner full of Green Tomato Salsa.
You will, of course, still have this many tomatoes left (not to mention the previously mentioned horde of bushes left to be harvested)...
So you will find a page like this, and set to work devising a plan to cook up as many variations as possible.
