I live in Sourthern NH about 200 mi east of you.
I select a 90 day to maturity variety, I start about 12 weeks early
so I have a 12 to 16 in plant in a 4x6in pot (Mostly newspaper)
to reduce root trauma at transplanting.

You live in Zone 4 Last typical frost May 20th and first
normal ?? is Sept 10. Normal plant out is Memorial Day
And start thinking about frost covers on Labor Day

For paste tomatoes try the Amish Paste, lot more flavor
and larger. Needs staking for 6ft plant, and a lot of sucker
