It's Cuor de Bue's Day! Jeff Davis pulled

Today's harvest has 40 Red Currant, 12 Red Grape, 11 Yellow Perfection, 9 Black Cherry, 8 White Currant, 8 Italian Ice, 5 back yard Green Grape, 5 Snow White, 4 Cuor de Bue (8 ounces, 13.5 ounces, 13 ounces, 8.5 ounces), 3 back yard Garden Peach(1), 3 Sweet Olive, 3 Black From Tula (10 ounces, 8.5 ounces, 9.5 ounces), 3 Aunt Ruby's German Green (6 ounces, 7.5 ounces), 2 Jaune Coeur de Pigeon, 2 Oaxacan Jewel(2), 2 front yard Garden Peach, 2 back yard Paul Robeson (one 6 ounces), 2 Tiger Paw, a front yard Mexico, back yard Husky Cherry Red, Plum Tigris, German Orange Strawberry, Sweet 100, SunSugar, a back yard Speckled Roman (with end rot), Babywine and Orange Blossom for a total of 133 tomatoes.

Today was Cuor de Bue's day. The plant isn't all that big but was growing some big, big tomatoes. Today we picked off a few of the largest ones and they look very, very nice.

I came home at lunch yesterday to water and fertilize the back yard container plants. In the evening I found out that my wife had watered the back yard container plants in the morning. Oops! This isn't a big deal, though.

My wife watered the back yard while I staked and taped afterwards.

We've had indirect indication of a caterpillar on Red Currant and Black Krim. But neither my wife or I could find it last night.

Jeff Davis was pulled out last night.

Late in the evening we purchased some more tomato stakes.

I forgot to mention that yesterday's back yard harvest was the largest this year (86 tomatoes).
