It's Still Hot, Dry and Smoky

Today's modest harvest includes 5 Snow White(2), 3 back yard Husky Cherry Red, 3 Yellow Perfection, 3 Turkish Striped Monastery, 2 Jaune Coeur de Pigeon, 2 Red Grape, 2 Paul Robeson, Snow White(1), Garden Peach(2), Orange Blossom, Black Cherry, Plum Tigris, Sweet 100, Jaune Flamme, Red Currant, a front yard Husky Cherry Red and Babywine for a total of 30 tomatoes.

We ended the month harvesting 3250 tomatoes, 1672 from the front yard and 1578 in the back yard.

The second Snow White plant has reached over 200 harvested tomatoes (203).

Saturday the temperature got up to 104 at Pierce College. Yesterday it reached 105 degrees.

We spent most of the afternoon and evening in Monrovia with our friends, Liz and Ricardo. We brought our rototiller (but couldn't get it started), got out of the bad air and heat of the San Fernando Valley and had an enjoyable time.

The worst part of the fire smell is it gives me the urge to smoke again. (I quit 15 months ago.)
