It's Hot! More Tomatoes Are Maturing

Today's harvest includes 24 Red Currant, 23 Snow White, 13 White Currant, 10 Italian Ice, 9 Jaune Coeur de Pigeon, 8 Black Cherry, 8 Tiger Paw, 6 front yard Garden Peach, 6 Red Grape, 5 Yellow Perfection, 4 Aunt Ruby's German Green (one 6 ounces), 3 back yard Garden Peach(1), 3 back yard Green Grape, 3 Sweet Olive, 3 Sweet 100, 3 Black Krim (11 ounces, 14.5 ounces, 12 ounces), 3 front yard Mexico (9 ounces, 9 ounces), 3 Babywine, 2 back yard Paul Robeson, 2 Orange Blossom (8 ounces, 8 ounces), 2 Turkish Striped Monastery, 2 Japanese Black Trifele, 2 SunSugar, Vintage Wine (8 ounces), Oaxacan Jewel(2), Oaxacan Jewel(1) (11 ounces), Black From Tula (12 ounces), Amazon Chocolate (9 ounces), and a back yard Speckled Roman (no end rot!) for a total of 153 tomatoes.

I actually had another harvested Amazon Chocolate but it looks like a bird pecked out part of it so I tossed it and didn't count it in the totals.

Yesterday it got up to 105.5 at Pierce College.

As you can imagine, based on the heat of the day nothing much happened with the tomatoes. I did a little bit of taping as I was harvesting in the morning.

Berkeley Tie Dye continues to mature. A Pierce's Pride is maturing. A Patio Princess is already maturing but it has a bad case of blossom end rot and will be tossed.
