    Yes to Pickled Green Tomatoes. Unfortunately, I don't have a personal tried & true recipe for you, but my parents used to put up huge batches of Pickled Green Tomatoes at the end of every summer. Think dill pickles, but wedges/quarters of green tomatoes instead. There are lots of recipes out there for them, all pretty much the same except for spiciness/sweetness. My parents' made them on the spicy side.

    I feel your pain.
    I also garden with composted manure & this year the yellow pear tomatoes have taken over the World!

    I do love pickled green tomatoes even more than the cucumber ones.
    Soon my remaining little greenies will go into a jar of brine for refrigerator pickles.
    They last 4-Ever - I am still eating some of last year's.

    Green tomato soup with ham, seriously good and uses 8 green tomatoes!

    2 tablespoons butter
    4 to 6 ounces country ham or smoked ham, diced
    1 small onion, diced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    4 cups chicken broth
    8 medium green tomatoes, peeled and chopped
    2 medium red tomatoes, peeled and chopped
    1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and stem removed, minced
    1/4 teaspoon celery salt
    dash Tabasco sauce, optional
    salt and pepper, to taste

    Preparation:
    Heat butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat; add ham, onion, and garlic. Sauté, stirring, until onion is tender. Add chicken broth, chopped green and red tomatoes, and minced jalapeno pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.

    Working in batches, pulse in a blender or food processor until almost smooth. Pour back into the saucepan and add celery salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper and Tabasco sauce, as desired. Serves 4-6.

    Default Green Tomato Mincemeat

    My uncle always made this with equal parts of green tomatoes and apples. Use your favorite pie spices, brown sugar and a stick of butter for each quart and some citrus peel. It is seasonal, but actually makes a nice gift.

    We are rapidly heading towards freezing season too I have 6 heirloom tomato plants (that are huge now) and am planning to try and extend their life with row covers. Just a thought for you to consider.
    We put plastic pipe around the raised beds and bought cloth that we will clamp to the pipes.
    When we planted the garden last spring, we had a late season freeze. My neighbors lost plants, but ours survived....... Clearly it wont work all winter (sigh) but it will keep up in tomatoes for a while longer.........

    An unexpected turn of fate has kept me from the BB the past few weeks.

    Freeze was a light one and didn't even effect my basil! Tonite we are suppose to have a hard freeze of 25 degrees.

    Just happen to have a ham bone,so I will be making soup! Can't wait to try the other recipes. Thanks to you all.

    I don't have any green tomato recipes, but when the first hard freeze came, my mother always used to uproot the tomato plants and hang them upside down in the basement. Somehow, a lot of the tomatoes still on the vine would ripen that way.

    I was told to take out the plant with the green tomatoes on it and hang it upside down indoor somewhere. The local "expert", someone named Cisco? on KIRO radio. I am going to try it, anyone have any idea if this is valid for getting the ts to ripen?
