That Manchester Terrier...


Yesterday's haul: Nothing. Today's haul: A good sized Aker's Plum.

Our Manchester Terrier took down (and I assume ate) the maturing Pierce's Pride as well as the one next to it. Now this plant has only one more tomato on it but it's not worth saving. Rats!!! So I harvested the Aker's Plum to keep it away from the Manchester Terrier, as well as the fact that it should be cold over the weekend. This tomato will probably ripen a bit quicker in the house.

My wife watered the pots in the back yard as well as all of the front yard.

There's a light rain falling as I type...

Google Maps Shows Our Front Yard Tomato Plants


Today's harvest: Nothing.

Some time last weekend my wife did get the back yard watered.

On a funny note – if you know our home address, you can see the tomato plants in our front yard on Google Maps. It looks like the picture was taken in early June.


The two tomatoes mentioned yesterday are definitely maturing.

Cherokee Chocolate Is Still Around


Today's haul: Nothing.

It turns out that Cherokee Chocolate did not get pulled by the gardener. I told my wife it could be pulled and I assumed that it was passed to the gardeners. It wasn't and it's still in the ground.

In the evening, our Manchester Terrier was caught by my wife taking one of the tomatoes off of Prairie Fire.
