Going Out Of Town...

And today's harvest includes: 3 Evan's Italian Plums, 2 Prairie Fires, Piccolo and a nice ripe Aker's Plum.

In regards to pulling Kellogg's Breakfast on Monday, I was wrong. That's still in the ground.

My wife and I replaced one of the cages for one of the winter tomatoes.

There won't be any updates from me from now until Monday. I'll be out of town until Sunday night.

Catching Up...

Catching up...

On Saturday I picked Piccolo. Also, we picked our first winter tomato, but I'm a bit embarrassed to say I'm not sure which plant it is. It's either Siberian or Glacier but I'm not sure which.

My wife watered the front yard.

The gardeners pulled five tomato plants in the morning: Red Yellow Cap, Carbon, Italian Market Wonder, Painted Ukrainian, Kellogg's Breakfast and Olga's Round Yellow Chicken.

In the evening the Manchester Terrier knocked off our Pierce's Pride tomato. It wasn't nearly ripe enough to be salvageable.

On Sunday, I picked Piccolo and Evan's Italian Plum. My birthday was on Sunday. There was a Saturday night dinner at a Korean restaurant and Sunday brunch with relatives.

Because I got up late today I didn't check for tomatoes. The air was very dry, it was windy, and several fires were going in the hills.
