I'm Back!

Today's harvest includes 2 Piccolos, 2 Evan's Italian Plums (one 7.5 ounces, even this late in the season...), Old Ivory Egg and Cherokee Chocolate.

My wife pulled Thessaloniki on Wednesday only to discover that it had two tomatoes on it! This isn't quite as bad as it sounds. I had kept Thessaloniki around because I swore I saw tomatoes on it but I could never find them. This went on for weeks. The plant was starting to lean again, looking more and more fragile (though green) and so on. So my wife decided to pull it, if for no other reason than it was this big large, lurching, ugly tomato plant in the middle of the front yard surrounded by either bare dirt or recently manicured rose bushes. It's understandable.

Also, we got a tomato from one of the winter plants – I think it was Oregon Spring.

My wife watered the back yard yesterday.
