I watered the front yard tomato plants and the whole back yard this morning.

I harvested the same total today as I did yesterday but this batch of tomatoes was lighter than yesterday's harvest. The front yard harvest of 135 tomatoes is the second largest for the year.

I gave my wife permission to remove the front yard Paul Robeson.

Tomorrow we'll go over the 3500 mark for harvested tomatoes in July.

The highest harvest total in the back yard this year is now held by Yellow Perfection (270 tomatoes).

My wife just came back from looking all over the San Fernando Valley for a canning pot. More tomato canning in the future for us!
